Train style seating planned for new sociable flying experience

Thomson Airways has unveiled designs for new family and couple seating options for its airplanes. 

The plans, which will see seating layout similar to that on trains, are set to be rolled out on the airline's new Boeing 737 MAX jets over the next five years.

The company is one of the largest charter airlines in the world and its flights run from the UK to destinations in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean.

For families, the new seating area will be available in a group of six chairs, with three in a row on either side of a table.

And if you're in a couple and want to have some extra space there is the option for duo-seating which consists of a traditional row of three chairs, but the middle seat can be changed to make way for a table.

The flight will also offer mood lighting for a "more spacious and luxurious start to the holiday", extra legroom, as well as meals based on the destination of the flight.

Other amenities on will include a kids' club, to give parents a bit of a break, with airline staff providing entertainment for the children. Crew will also be equipped with iPads to offer advice to passengers on what there is to do at their holiday destination.

There's no word yet on how much the new seats will be as prices vary depending on holiday packages, where the passengers are flying to and whether or not it's a group booking.
