I got a premium upgrade with 'extra legroom' on a transatlantic flight back when they were First Choice. We got stuck in front of a wall. As you can't put your foot underneath a sheer wall the practical result was that you basically had less room to stretch your legs than with regular seats. Our upgrade didn't cost us anything (staff benefit) so we didn't really have a moan but the people next to us had paid a fair bit and weren't happy. Not convinced they've improved things since they were taken over.
MAN to SFB, 28th April to 8th may, £229 pp if you can make those dates work for ya? there’s also premium club seats at £195
Just a tip. Car hire is always a risky business - will I get ripped off for damage already there on the car before I drive it away? It's not so much of a problem in the US as elsewhere, like Spain, Italy etc, but to be on the safe side I'd recommend you do a walk around the car with a member of staff noting any existing damage (they're supposed to do this but never do) and/or do a walk round taking a video of all 4 sides and top of the car, focusing in on any areas of damage, scratches, nicks, dings etc., making sure you are seen doing it. Same thing when you return it. A few minutes start and finish of your holiday could well save you a headache and lots of cash later on down the line. There's also insurance you can take out here before you go to cover any damage excess and the like. Can't remember what it's called but it will be around £20-£25 and will replace/compliment the insurance you get out there. Again, not so much a problem in the US, but car hire staff always try to scare you or put a massive charge on your credit card to cover damage trying to force you to take out their additional, but expensive, further cover instead. Some may even say that your UK cover is irrelevant and won't cover you so you MUST take out their additional cover. Bunkum - just ignore them as you don't have to. Cracking deal - and I'm only 2 miles from Gatwick! But wife works for an airline so gets 12 free flights a year luckily!
There seems to be (or was as I was looking) premium club seats on the 21st and 25th, didn’t look at any others, only 3 on each though. £217 on the 21st which is even better value :)
Search and select the flight you’re interested in, on the next page after you’ve selected it, it lists all available upgrades and options. things like extra leg room seats, exit seats, baggage and ‘if there’s any available’ the premium upgrade seats. when you’ve looked at a couple you’ll get the idea, the premium cabin is small so there’s not always availability and if there’s 4 or more of you it can start to get expensive, but Florida’s never really been a “cheap” holiday :)
