late departure , no headsets for entertainment screen ,not the best seats

Feb 14, 2018

It would be good on night flights if the brightness of Video screens was reduced automatically when the cabin lights are dimmed, or at least an announcement made requesting that. Diagonally in front passengers often have very bright screens hindering sleep. Eye masks might be a welcome alternative. On the outward trip many passengers including us, never found the seat reclining lever. We also did not know that we were supposed to keep the complimentary headsets for the return journey; this was not a problem...they were re-issed without comment. This is all detail stuff....we were impressed and have recommended Thomas Cook to others. The food was particularly good, served by helpful friendly staff.

Please improve the food quality on board.
