Pushchairs on flights

Post by issno » August 4th, 2009, 7:34 pm

Hi everyone
We are a family of four (2 adults 2 kids , 1 year old and 2 year old) flying out to Arenal this friday, just wondering if anyone knows what the policy with pushchairs is with Thomas Cook airlines. Basically we would like to know if you can take pushchairs at no extra charge ( should we take one or two?) Did try calling Thomas Cook but was on hold for 45 mins before the line went dead.
Anyway looking forward to the holiday.
Thanks Issno

Hi,

Push chairs don't count towards your luggage allowance, neither do car seats.
Did you know that you can also buy 10kgs of luggage for an infant? This would have to be done directly with the airline & I think it costs about £4.50.
I can't remember Thomas Cook Airlines' number but if you pop back into this thread tomorrow evening, I'll have it for you.

Now I could write something really, really "Clarksonish" here........

Some say it was rude and uncalled for. Some say it made them wet themselves laughing.

You have nothing to worry about, you will be invited to board first and you pushchairs will follow. No worries.

Hi

Off to arenal on Friday as well with Thomas Cook flying from Newcastle.

If I were you I would take 2 pushchairs for the little ones, Arenal is built on a hill and it can be a bit hard walking back from the beach especially for little legs! Don't let that put you off Arenal is a beautiful resort!

Enjoy your stay!

When we've been with our babies we've left the pushchair at the gate or with Monarch they make you carry the pushchair down the stairs and across the tarmac - I was 3 months pregnant and travelling with my 15 month on my own so I left it at the stairs and they had to load it for me! I take a sling to put the baby in for getting on and off the plane as I don't fancy carrying them all through passport control. We're going in September and my youngest will be 11 months, I hope I can carry him in the sling!! We're planning on taking our double pushchair, but we're lucky as we're staying with Grandma and she's also got a single.
