20kg available with Thomson. No problem.
We booked in mid-November, and got 20Kg included, when I re-checked after Xmas it's now 15Kg (checked again tonight).
Dodgy Thomson Gits'!!
I have an inkling to phone them and check this has not been changed without telling me!

Ours was also 20kg each when we booked last September for this September and it now says 15kg. I assume that this will be only for people booking now or am I wrong to think that way? I think an email or phone call will have to be made

All San Stef came up with 20kg in Co-op travel this morning. It pays to do research!

I just did an interesting bit of "research". If you look at First Choice web booking things get clearer:

Olga on First Choice clearly shows the baggage allowance as 15kg, but has the £30 charge for adding 5kg checked by default. With that included the prices are:

Thomson £978 (20kg)
First Choice £968 (20kg) or £938 (15kg)

So the "real" prices for the Thomson packages showing 15kg should have £30 added for normalisation. Very strange. Why they don't do this across the board I really can't see - but it does make the headline price look lower. Cheeky sods!

You're right waspman.
It's not standard now but I've checked my paperwork and I've definately got 20kg.
The price has also gone up since we booked.
We paid £1307.99 for 2 weeks on 19/8/11 leaving Gatwick at 6.40am. We've also booked seats with extra leg room.
If we were to book it today it would be £1,430.
Glad we booked early now!!!
