    Good flight in upper class, you almost don't know there are 400+ other people on board. Good service and good food. 3 Reds and 3 Whites, the 2014 G de Gutraud Bordeaux Blanc was very good and the staff did a nice job of keeping my glass full. After dinner was a good cheese course and I watched a ...

    Coming back from Orlando to Glasgow we could not choose our seats as we had done on the way out. In retrospect I should have phoned to challenge this but whether this would help or not I don't know. Anyway, the website would not allow us to check in online and said we had to arrive at the ...

    On the outbound we could assign seats online ourselves and chose the upper deck, premium economy, where seats are arranged 2 and 2 and just the flight deck in front of you so very nice and quiet and comfortable. Staff were excellent supplying larger paper cups for tea/coffee rather than the ...

    This was the final leg of a 4 day trip to USA. I did not have pleasant thoughts about this flight. The combination of Virgin Atlantic, a Gatwick arrival, the bland MCO Delta lounge and a capital connect journey home, were enough to send shivers down my spine. Getting through MCO is not too bad ...

I had checked myself and my friend in online and there was no queue at the bag drop queue. Security took 20 minutes and the automated gates worked perfectly. We did ...

    I fly virgin most times to the states because of their service is excellent but the only complaint this time is the new economy class seats on the revamped 747-400,not very comfortable for long haul flights, the headrest does not have much padding and the seating is a bit on the hard side nearing ...
