Thomson abandons plans for May Dreamliner flights

Holiday airline Thomson is dropping plans to operate Boeing's Dreamliner from May. The Boeing 787 has suffered a string of operational difficulties in recent months. Thomson says it is still waiting for a delivery schedule and will switch customers booked in May and June to alternative planes.

In a statement Thomson said: "The supplement paid for the 787 Dreamliner flight will be refunded to those customers who proceed with their original holiday bookings, and customers will also have the option to amend their holiday without incurring any amendment fees."
