“As good as ever!!”
Review of Virgin Atlantic Airways


Reviewed June 27, 2019

Never have had a bad flight with Virgin Airways and our recent flight from London Heathrow to Los Angeles was no exception. Attentive cabin crew, decent food and excellent in flight entertainment. An eleven hour flight passed in no time at all , great airline to fly with!!

So..... we go big every other year, and that includes luxury travel. A couple of years ago we went first class BA, and reading reviews we thought Virgin Upper Class would be similar. It’s not. Good, but Business Class good. Just minor things were wrong and that took the gloss off.

Whilst there is a wide range of TV, Films, Documentaries and music, trying to adjust volume on screen can be frustrating. The inflight dinner options were spicy and best described as fancy flatulence food generating large quantities of wind. The flight crew were pleasant and helpful. Bag reclaim at Manchester is slow. Glad I don't have to fly across the pond frequently.

Overall a good service, and flying Premium Economy was definitely worth the reasonable extra cost.
The seats were comfortable, food and drink were plentiful - they do gluten-free meals, but you need to ask in advance. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. For premium economy you get larger seats and more food and drink. It was definitely worth paying for this extra as I was flying back overnight from Boston to London. Their selection of films was good too!
They weren't able to accommodate my request for an aisle seat though on my way back overnight, and I'd tried and failed to select a seat on their website but it just wouldn't let me. After a long delay at check-in though, a more senior member of staff found me a bulkhead seat which was fine.

Enough leg room and I’m 5.8. Brilliant seat back screen with a very good choice of films and tv. I watched a star is born and bohemian rhapsody. Food was ok but Thomas cook meals by James Martin are nicer. Great service from the attendants and can ask for extra drinks if you want.
