Seat was very comfortable and spacious. I did not feel cramped at any point.
The best flying experience yet very smooth and quiet.. entertainment superb lots of legroom
Seats very narrow due to tray being located in armrest very expensive to buy the leg room TUI loses no opportunity to extract miney
I have never travelled Premium class before and to be honest was a bit dubious about it. Having now returned from Costa Rica I would definitely do it again. The lounge at the start of the journey is a great way to start the holiday and and security was a breeze. The experience on the plane was first class and made longhaul so much more pleasurable. The staff were fantastic and always happy to help.
Height of interior good. Did not like air system .blew cold air then it heated up again then blew more cold air
30b/c out and 10H/j back Going out the seats were probably the seats with the most leg room on the whole plane, but the open space was a mecca for passengers to use as space to stand around, a simple solution was to spread out with our hand luggage building some space around us, the other issue was the toilet door, bang bang bang, right through the flight. We booked two seats and were pleased to see that the third seat wasn't taken so we could take a seat either side giving us both two arm rests, which was good, as the seats at 17" are narrow. The other problem I had was I'm not slim, and the fold out table was just too close to me to be of any use, so luckily I had the table next to me to use when the meals came. On the return we were not so lucky as all 3 seats were taken, but although we had less space in front of us, the leg room was more than enough, and putting my neck cushion inside the magazine rack on the wall in front of me gave me a fantastic footrest. I managed to sleep a lot of the flight home, but when awake it did feel cramped. On the particular plane we were on the screen on 10J didn't work for movies, only for announcements. If ever we go on a dream liner again we will try to get the economy premium seats, an added expense, but the plane is just a bit too narrow for the 9 seats across set up.
On some TUI 787s 37a is without a window (and the same on the starboard side too) on this flight they squeezed an extra row in and 38a so this is not only windowless but cramped too.
The dreamliner adds to the overall performance and comfort of the flight with the extra features it provides which other aircraft do not have. Staff understood my need to frqeuntly stand at the back of the aircraft to stretch my legs. This was necessary for me on such a long journey. Apart from the meals which were tasty and appropriate, one cuold ask for water, tea ,coffee, and soft drinks on demand. Staff were pleasant and unserstanding. My family and I would fly TUI again and again. Please keep me informed of special fares. Continue the good service you provide. Please keep me informed of special fares to Mauritius
First time on Dreamliner. Really enjoyed the experience. Must use this company, (TUI), again.
Well I got the seat I booked but it was different on the actual plane! I booked J1 was on the seating plan when I booked was by the window and I ended up in the aisle so I presume the same will be going home. Really disappointed and it made me look an idiot when I questioned the chap sitting in what I thought was my seat! Needs sorting Otherwise a good flight although I could not finish the film as we landed. Seats very narrow would not have fitted a larger person by any stretch if the imagination.
Great seats not sure why they are marked as a problem, no one behind you moving arround 2 widows, backing on to toilet but no problem with that, dreamliner is fab plane, mood lighting and all. Seats recline same as everyone else
1A/1C out - 1G/1J back (identical seats both ways)Leg room in these seat is more than ample for me (5ft 4) and my partner (5ft 10), and these seats come with a leg rest rather than a foot rest, which I personally prefer. Seat recline was good, but aware that you are taking space from those behind (my teenage kids in this case) so did not fully recline, but still was comfortable. TV Screen was on a leg and popped up from the central arm rest. USB ports in the screen and 3 pin socket in the central arm rest. Head phones were very comfortable to wear. You get a pillow and blanket along along with a comfort pack (but only on the way out, so hold onto it for your return journey). Though these seat are located near the toilets and galley area, I was not disturbed at all ( someone mentioned in a previous post that their were people constantly queueing for toilets) but as there are two toilets in the premier area which can only be used by those in premier, I can't see this is ever a problem. Being located at the front meant you got served first thus getting your first choice from the menu! Entertainment was a little limited compared to other airlines, but enough to keep me happy. My kids however were disappointed with the choice available. Meals I can highly recommend, we had the evening meal and breakfast, along with an afternoon tea and lunch. Snacks of popcorn and crips, and apparently Ice Cream (but I was asleep, so missed it) Ample drinks and you only needed to ask for more when required. More than enough overhead luggage room and the size and weight of ours was not checked at anytime unlike some other airlines. No1 Lounge in Gatwick was the perfect start to our holiday with fast track through check in and security making everything very slick. Fast track check in but no lounge at Punta Cana (food and drink are pretty expensive too as is the duty free). All in all very impressed with Tui premier service (1st time I have flown with them) and the seats we had. Service was excellent and they were all very friendly. Would defiantly fly with them again.
Great two seats if sitting as a couple, space beside to put your baggage and no one to disturb if you get up. Had no issues with toilets being nearby. Seats didn't recline but had ample leg room and a window!
Love the Dreamliner spacious and comfortable larger windows like the shading seating is comfortable entertainment good quiet on long haul
An extra leg room seat. It was, I counted up to 16, in addition to our own six legs at times. Entire families for the toilet at once. This was bothersome and at times ridiculous as they jumped over our legs and filled the walkways, whilst jigging and crossing their legs. This aside the flight was good. I would suggest if you pay for extra leg room to sit in the other seats available as these are not good as suggested by the Seat maestro plan
I flew with BA in the dreamliner and it is a lovely aircraft - very quiet. I haven't flown with Tui but looking at the configuration it looks very tight - not much leg room. I did think the inflight entertainment was much better on Icelandair but overall a great service.
Tui have squeezed an extra row into one (or more) of their B787s and the legroom is no better than their old B737s. I was lucky enough to fly on an Emirates B787 recently and with a proper airline it is a nice plane. Tui, however, are really just a budget airline. The eleven hour flight to Mexico isn't a "long haul" flight according to Tui so they only served one meal and a snack.
The seat was filthy & had food all under the crease where I was to sit, the seatbelt was covered in food aswell. There was also black mould or something horrible above my head.
Very good service Stewards very helpful and cheerful Food excellent Leg room brilliant
Good very good seats are great only i wouls like if they could hang a little bit more to the back, good space for your legs. can realy strech,would also like more movies. but alround it waw great
