I always sit in the upper deck of the A380. The 80 tourist class seats are much better than the configuration on other planes. The service is great and personalized. CS's food always amazes me with its quality.

Like every other commercial airliner, the seats are not large enough and don't recline enough. It's not about the leg room, it's about the shoulder and hip room.

Nothing was spectacular.

No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns.

The crew was professional, responsive and friendly.

The following experience goes down in history as the worst ever because: we had a 3.5 year old child, and mom and dad seated directly in front of our row. The couple ignored the instructions to move seats forward during meals making it impossible to eat. They placed their luggage in the overhead compartment belonging to both rows, which wasn't a problem if they hadn't proceeded to open and close the compartment every 20 minutes. The 300 pd dad repeatedly stepped on my broken toe while reaching for his luggage, while rattling around and disturbing sleeping passengers. And, sadly the child repeatedly threw temper tantrums without any care or effort of intervention from the parents. In short, they terrorized the surrounding travellers. In contrast, my outbound flight, also had a family seated in the row directly in front. This family was the antithesis, considerate and respectful of their fellow passengers. Susan Laws

Everything about my flights on Virgin Atlantic was amazing. The plane was new and comfortable, the seats seemed to recline more than in other airplane I have been. The entertainment was good with a wide selection of movies and TV shows. The crew was incredibly nice and helpful and I had a really pleasant time talking with them. On the airport team side I can also say they were extremely helpful as I missed my flight and they promptly rebooked me on the next one 3h later, free of charge. I think the stress of missing a flight was completely deflected by the help of the Virgin Atlantic crew at the desk so thank you for that!

The only thing I would improve is the main dish in the meal. I loved all the small sides like the Boursin and crackers but I found the main meal a little bland l.

They assigned me the last seat abutting the bathroom in the back of the plane. It was the smallest seat with zero leg room. The seat itself had zero cushion. And because the back of the seat is against the wall of the bathroom it could not be leaned back either. The entertainment screen is so close to my face I could not look at it directly. I was probably the only Black guy in there. I wonder how they found me that seat. It was a Nonstop flight, I will fly China Southern every chance I get because I just want to get from point A to point B. But, I'll be asking more questions about my seat assignment before accepting it.

The flight was delayed over an hour to wait for a flight that had some connecting passengers-the delay caused me to miss my connection on the other side. I expect a full fligjtvto prioritize the paying customers who are already present, most of whom had connections to make. When I requested help rebooking my connecting flight in LAX, they gave me (rudely) a QR code and a “certificate” (piece of paper) that said the flight was delayed. The QR code was to check for updates for the delayed flight (useless) and the “certificate was not a help at all for rebooking my domestic connection on the other side. The flight was so late that there were no more flights out to my destination, so I ended up paying for a hotel and change fee $175+ to book a flight first thing next miening. Both the hotel and SWAir said that certificate was meaningless. Our flight over was bad too-very rude personnel at the desk, and stressed out flight attendants...miserable experience both times-never again. We pre-selected seats and both times we were separated. Save your money and pay more for an airline that has customer service because it will end up costing you more in the long run.
