Thomson Dreamliner Short/Medium Haul

The Thomson site is showing the Dreamliner being used on some short haul routes in 2016 but I can't find a seat plan for the reconfigured aircraft used for short haul. Has anyone any idea what the ordinary seat pitch will be and how much legroom will the extra space seats have?

The short/mid haul configuration for Thomson Dreamliner for economy is exactly the same as they use on long, the only difference is the Premium cabin which is 2-3-2 on long haul the seats are changed and has a 3-3-3 configuration which are then sold as Extra Legroom seats.

Extra Legroom and Extra Space seats in the economy cabin have exactly the same seat pitch with Extra Legroom seats in the reconfigured forward cabin 38" seat pitch the same as the Premium cabin for long haul.

Hi Angie, would you know what the pitch is on economy short haul. Is it the same as economy long haul and what would be a good seat on these flights I'd window seat. Thanks

Economy seat pitch on the Dreamliner short/mid haul is the same 32" seat pitch in the standard seats as on the long haul flights. Best seats with a window view would be rows 11-14 if you can book them when the seat plan opens.

What routes are Thomson using the 787 on for short/mid haul routes?

Can't find any info on the routes anywhere.

You cannot find out specific routes in advance, you only find out that the flight is on a Dreamliner when you go through the booking process, then it will show a Thomson/TUI Dreamliner logo on the booking in the flight details.

Hi Angie, thanks for all the info you give. Booked to go to turkey in August 2016 on the Dreamliner and flown many times long haul, they don't mention comp drinks on this flight is that because they're not doing on short/med haul? Also booked extra legroom with a 7 year old, what row do you suggest?
