Both outbound to JFK and inbound from Atlanta the food options were very poor for a ticket selling at £2,500 when we left. A330 seats were more comfortable than the new A350 and wider, crew were far better on the 330 also. The cabin being smaller felt safer given the current issues.
Delays, grumpy service staff
Unfortunately this was operated by Delta which is nothing like Virgin.
Plane was delayed several hours, with no explanation, the food served was poor, and the entertainment system did not work for the entire flight for the majority of the plane
The new business class configuration isn't the best. Knees keep bumping. The seat area wasn't the cleanest either. There was an orange peel on the floor. Meal - mediocre.
Had a brillant flight from LAX and the lady that check us in at LAX on the vs6848 flight to Manchester was outstanding ! And deserves recognition! She was patient with when we were paniced about us been late and havibg five chikdren under five...she kept us clam... reassured us and booked our bags..ensure my elderly mother had assistance and also waited for my husband who had gone to the toilet and jad got himself lost in the airport. We made it to the plan on time... please fjnd that lady as I really want her to be recognized The plane was of high standard and we got the seats thats worked well with our large family My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information.
This was a delta economy flight. Staff were nice but everything else pretty rubbish tbh
Liked traveling with Virgin on the past. This time checking was an issue, meals sucked, we were missed when meals were served. Not a great experience. Will travel in two weeks to the UK but will fly with another carrier
Lounge in Heathrow is great. Staff aim to please and very courteous. The upper class seat is very narrow with no storage area. Strange seating position, no options to recline the seat while sitting up. Who thought that this was a good idea? IFE minimal. On borard Lavs shared with premium economy class.
Friendly and helpful folks from checkin to deplaning
Was not let to board as the site failed to notify me if a friend purchased the ticket they need to be present at check in. Now we are not able to get a refund and paid for a ticket we will never use. Ridiculous rules as I fly from London and she lives in the US. How can she be present to show her card. $480 down the drain on top of that I had to purchase a ticket at the airport since I was already there
Erything was excellent and easy
More veggie options. Or something healthier.
Pros: The service and patience
Cons: Everything was great
Pros: Great service and comfortable ride excellent staff
Cons: Cannot expect better service
Pros: People were friendly. Flight was comfortable.
Cons: Staff incorrectly assessed documents needed for visas, and told us we were incomplete and needed to return home. Instead of looking up policy, we were denied boarding mid-flight, missed a wedding, and had to spend three days in London instead of our destination. Also, we got bug bites during the flight that turned out to be from bed bugs, which followed us home and caused much frustration for months.
Pros: Crew was excellent - friendly and helpful
Cons: Seats in economy too cramped - I paid extra for next seat up from basic economy which covered our baggage but, for some reason, not seats with more leg room.
Pros: The crew was friendly, the food delicious, and the plane itself in highest quality and state-of-the-art.
Pros: Always helpful cabin staff and very efficient
Cons: Cery old aircraft ecenomy cramped (usually fly premium but it was an emergency )
Pros: Being on time
Cons: Nothing you guys did great thank you so much.
Pros: Comfortable seating, pleasant food and entertainment.
Cons: Not being charged $1200 for a ticket that I already bought, but had been voided with no notice. And Virgin Atlantic staff not friendly or helpful in any way with this situation.
Pros: Crew are always top notch, free drinks are readily available and entertainment system is great.
Cons: The food portions and quality have definitely declined over the years sadly, as carriers cut costs no doubt.
Pros: Boarding and crew great!
Cons: Seats extremely narrow
Pros: This is the way to fly long haul.
Cons: Frustration is it is impossible to sleep during the breakfast service, but this is a problem for all airlines and Virgin is better than most.
Cons: Nothing really
Pros: Amazing !
Cons: Nothing all good really
Pros: Crew were super friendly and helpful. Food was delicious, comfortable seats, great selection of entertainment.
Cons: Cheaper baggage rates
Pros: I like that there are multiple bathrooms onboard.
Cons: The rows are so narrow between seats that your roll on suitcase will not fit. You have no elbow room in your seat. People who live in England are very rude and would not let those of us seated in front of them to deplane. Too bad there isn’t someway to make people wait their turn.
Cons: Food wasn’t great and not a lot of it. London to Orlando was good. Connection was good.
