I am aware that you can connect your phone into the in-flight entertainment system, can you charge phones just the Gatwick-Montego Bay flight is 9 hours 55 minutes

It doesn't seem to have - however, it looks like there's USB ports. Enjoy the dreamliner!

Did anyone else notice that TOM are starting DXB this winter season from NCL?

TOM are running a couple of return flights from Newcastle to DWC. I think there is one in December and the other in January the last time I tried to get a price for one of these flights I was informed that early bookings could only be made for people going on a Thomson Celebrity cruise (but that might change closer to departure).
Apparently MS Thomson Celebrity will be based in Dubai during the winter period.
EDIT.
Fight only option now available on the thomsonfly website.
Flight dates are NCL to DWC 26/12/16 & 30/01/17.
DWC to NCL 03/01/17 & 07/02/17.

DWC, yes. I would assume they will use some 757/767s because they still have two 767s

TOM 794 / 795 NCL -DWC is booked for a 787-8.

Surprised at that

Not really - I think it's a sensible utilisation of the 787 fleet over the winter season, especially if they have the hotel chains lined up. It seems that the O&D market in Dubai is growing - for which, this utilisation will be good. 

Speaking of winter aircraft utilisation, to be honest, I still don't understand why they don't fly England-PVR/CUN over the winter season. That's when the resorts become really busy with Americans and the weather becomes slightly more predictable. I suppose we just aren't as accustomed to winter holidays as with the summer...

I have discovered today that my trip to Jamaica in May/June will actually be flown by a 787-9!

I might get the yet undelivered G-TUIK

Just done online check in, apparently in Jamaica it is illegal to print out your own boarding passes, so you take a confirmation sheet to the airport and then they print them off

G-TUIK was delivered to MAN in the early hours of yesterday morning, and ferried down to Gatwick this afternoon (Saturday)
