Thomson Airways, Britain’s third largest airline, was looking for ideas on how  to improve its Dreamliner aircraft.

The novel concept was one of several ideas suggested by four-year-old Amber Winters, from Birmingham, the winner of the airline’s  #Nameourplane competition. Children between the ages of four and 11 were asked to suggest a name for Thomson’s new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, as well as ways the airline could improve its services for young passengers.

Her suggestions included a kids’ area with bean bags and a reading corner at the back of the aircraft.

The finalists from Thomson’s #Nameourplane competition who were also asked to suggest ways it could improve its services to better cater to children.

Amber, whose winning name for the aircraft was Pixie Dust, was joined by nine other finalists for an Ambassador Day event at Gatwick Airport, where they were given a chance to present all of their ideas to a panel of judges and a tour of the new Dreamliner by Thomson Airways pilot Stuart Gruber.

“All of our finalists had some fantastic ideas, so it was a really hard decision selecting our overall winner,” Mr Gruber said.

“We’re looking forward to trialling some of Amber’s suggestions on board the new aircraft,” he added.

The same amount wanted free toys on board, while around a quarter of them suggested both an arts and crafts area and a soft play area. One in 10 said they’d love to see the cabin crew in fancy dress during the flight.
