The last time we flew to the UK, we took an American Airlines flight to Edinburgh. The return flight on worn lumpy seats with no entertainment save for looking at Greenland from the seat window was a killer. So when a friend recommended we look into Thomas Cook's premium tourist class non-stop flight from Las Vegas to Manchester, I took the tip and ran with it. My wife and I had roomy seats with good service and entertainment choices at less than we would have paid for tourist class on the better known airlines we looked into. They are more stringent on carry-on baggage and I found it a little tedious to get in touch with someone to answer what were essentially anxiety questions caused by my being a Thomas Cook newbie. We also had to catch a short-hop flight from our home in the Phoenix area to Vegas. But it was worth it and I would do it again without hesitation.
