Pros: "Craig in first cabin flight crew was amazing. :))))"
Pros: "The food was good. The lane was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full, and the 767 is a large aircraft. I think it would be preferable if Virgin Atlantic would board the plane by zones, similar to other airlines."
Pros: "The crew where awesome and catered to every need and requirement."
Cons: "need to have a slightly deeper seat pitch in premium economy to allow people out without having to wake each other up. Especially on night flights."
Pros: "It was empty so we were told we could move around in the empty seats"
Cons: "Food was basically carbs, carbs and more carbs (especially if vegetarian). Some diversity, please. Staff forgot requests on a couple of occasions (Economy Delight cabin)."
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "The business class seats are the best we’ve had. Plenty of room, nicely laid out, good organization design. The blankets were fluffy and very comfortable. Crew was super attentive and friendly. For such a long flight, it was very pleasant, will highly recommend."
Cons: "They have to uptade the airplanes"
Pros: "Food was great. Friendly stas staff."
Cons: "LAX AIRPORT signage leaves something to be desired. Nothing to do with airline."

Pros: "Service, pilot updates, and seating were all great!"
Pros: "Lots of leg room, even in economy."
Cons: "Entertainment choices were a bit sparse."
Pros: "The crew was professional, responsive and friendly."
Cons: "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"
Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"
Cons: "Why do I have to get a new boarding pass in London"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Cons: "These seats are small"
Pros: "So much food!! They kept bringing food out the whole flight..The seats were great. It was a very comfortable flight"
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever!"
Pros: "I could sleep in peace the entire flight and the food. The little care packages we receive with a sleeping mask and ear plugs are also fun and useful."
Pros: "The flight crew from the mel to lax route were excellent. One was especially attentive to my 2 toddlers and gave me a bit of a break, something that has NEVER happened in over 40 flights traveling with children."
Cons: "I think something was broken in our section (mel to lax) as it was uncomfortably hot and the flight crew tried to get it cooler but could not. I’ve never experienced a flight that was too hot, usually the opposite. It was stifling."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of my experience, super nice and accomodating"
Cons: "the wifi had subpar performance"
Pros: "Boarding, flight and crew all great. Having the connecting security pass in the airport which is a lot less busy than the main area. Good info given for connection."

Pros: "Seat is very comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "Couldn't stretch my right (window side) leg. Display quality was poor."
Cons: "After 14 hours the seats were like sitting on spikes"
Pros: "Entertainment selection Cabin Service associates were very good WiFi service available"
Cons: "The planes are old and tired, new 787s on this route are long overdue. Thomson's premium service is an improved offering over Virgin and offers more inclusive extras such as lounge access. There is no wonder wall on the 747 only a wonder "basket" If you are flying from Gatwick, upgrading to premium isn't worth it. Go to upper class or fly with another airline. Check in was quicker for Economy passengers and it proved a challenge to work past the economy passengers during boarding to get to the premium agent."
Pros: "Hard product and food"
Cons: "Crew need to realise their voices travel and some conversations the whole upper cabin don't need to hear"
Pros: "The speed of boarding, then the frequency of service. Cabin crew were very dedicated. All in all, a very smooth flight. Ps. my first Virgin was called Carole. ;)"
Cons: "The food left a lot to be desired, but apart from my flight on Emirates to Auckland, Airoplne food does tend to be somewhat......mmmm not sure what the word is, but room for improvement describes it."
Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"
Pros: "The service went a mile farther. It is my favourite airlines!"
Cons: "Customer service was horrible - they were so rude on the plane Food was done by the time it was our turn I got food poising off of the breakfast horrible"
Pros: "Audrey agent at the counter at Heathrow was amazing assisted me in getting my bags located and transfer from air malta to vigin"
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."
Pros: "Very professional crew throughout."
Pros: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."
Pros: "Professional Cabin Crew Excellent "vera" entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedure in Cancun airport, although I accept that this is more of an issue with airport layout Removal of some of the "Virgin Atlantic" benefits such as free sports equipment will make me rethink my carrier of choice from next year. The 747 fleet is starting to feel old - when are the dream liners coming?"
Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"
Pros: "It was a great experince we enjoy the flight other than the delay on the luggage"
Cons: "one of my luggage was lost and delayed for 2hrs. We waited at the Airport for the luggage to arrive."
Pros: "Entertainment system is great"
Cons: "Still very cramped. Cannot lower tray if you have anything in pocket (like an iPad or magazine) Should board rear section first."
Pros: "Great cabin comfort and entertainment. Very nice place to be."
Cons: "Cabin crew less warm and professionally nice than Virgin. One point that needs addressing is that when the cabin crew or, even more so, the pilot came on the PA, the sound level was so much louder than that of the entertainment system. You had people jumping out of their seats and it was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Very good service, plenty of food, food was pretty good, entertainment system was great and the seats in economy with very comfortable."
Pros: "Entertainment had a good selection"
Cons: "Seat very narrow. I'm a 5'5" 135 lb female."
Pros: "Everything except the seating - far too cramped now"
Cons: "Seating! Seats getting ridiculously tight"
Pros: "The veg meal - paneer, rice, lentils - was absolutely delicious. In fact, all of the food was great."
Cons: "Slight problem with the movie viewing - the screen kept going blank every minute or two throughout, and had to be touched to restart. Only on the films, though; the TV episodes were fine."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the seating was poor rather you paid to pick or not. When boarding you are told to social distance but you got folk sitting bunched up together with someone sitting next to you the whole flight. Delta doesn’t have people sitting in the middle seats. Poor flight when it comes to safety or health over money. SAD!"
Pros: "Pilots and crew are still great- all negative comments have to do with corporate policy."
Cons: "Not able to social distance at all. We had to board a bus to get to the plane and we sat there for 20 minutes breathing in exhaust while we were packed in like sardines rather than the bus going back and fourth with smaller groups. The plane was tiny, so again- no way to distance at all. Seats at the front were left unoccupied rather than allowing others to move to them for social distancing."
Pros: "Crew was OK"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was no power outlet."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Had no problems with my carry on."
Cons: "Paying for an assigned seat is ridiculous so my friend and I didn’t sit next to each other."
Pros: "Cabin kept dark for majority of flight, good for sleep."
Cons: "More Main Cabin Extra searing. Besides bulkhead and exit rows, no Main Cabin Extra seating. No power outlets (again) for mobile phones. It’s just unacceptable this day and age with the use of handhelds for in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was tight, friendly, flight comfortable & painless."
Pros: "No. they put me in the middle of aisle seat. It is hard for me to get up for use the bath room."
Cons: "I am an old man also I have a bladder problem. They should assign my seat by the aisle so I can get up when I want to use the bath room. Also they are a lot of empty seats."
Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. The flight was delayed for mechanical reasons. Then they boarded us and we sat for 3 hours on the tarmac because one of the air conditioning packs was broken. When we finally arrived, I found out my bag was lost. The worst flight of my life."
Cons: "Everything was perfect and on schedule! Thanks for the wonderful experience"
Cons: "There was crowding at the gate.. the staff was rude, sitting on the tarmac over an hour the plane was stuffy and no beverages were offered, no one was knowledgeable regarding if connecting flights would be missed,"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew, decent entertainment."
Cons: "The gate agents were rude. So happy with their ‘power’ over passengers who are loaded like cattle onto the plane. They barked at every other passenger that their carry on bag was too big and wouldn’t even listen to train when bags would fit into the size checking stand."
Pros: "Great and welcoming crew."
Pros: "Seat seemed smaller than previous flight BDL to MIA"
Cons: "On a short flight MIA to GCM AA has seat back screens. On longer flight BDL to MIA no seatback screens. Seems backwards logic!!"
Pros: "Everything was great on the AA flight"
Pros: "Newer plane. Standard American amenities. Fast WiFi and live TV channels."
Pros: "Friendly attendants"
Pros: "Flight was bumpy because of storms in the area but the crew did a great job of keeping it calm and making sure passengers were taken care of."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac when we landed for 20 mins for a reason not really made clear. The captain said that the alley was blocked but didn’t really keep us informed other wise."
Cons: "All flights should include WiFi, and or entertainment, and better snack options. Flights out of and to Burlington are very expensive!"
Pros: "Seats were nice and enjoyed the entertainment. Late flight meant loads of open seats and everyone was very happy about that."
Cons: "Delayed a half hour to board because flight attendants other flight was late getting in, but they kept us informed the entire time. Wasn’t their faults. Once we were on the plane, our flight was delayed for an hour, once again the pilots kept us informed and it wasn’t their faults. But it was kinda annoying."
Cons: "Super TSA lines in Denver and American employees were less than accomadating or did not meet any kind of customer service expectation. Terrible airline!"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Not a lot of snacks"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "This was my first time on a British Airways flight and I wasn’t to pleased. I asked for a soft and the crew member took nearly an hour to bring me one. I was sitting in a crammed seat and to make it worse the tv wasn’t working. It was on but I couldn’t change any channel. It was over a 6 hour flight that seemed even longer."
Pros: "Crew nice"
Cons: "Legroom terrible"
Pros: "Flight was delayed an hour in LAX due to mechanical issues. Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Flight Delay"
Cons: "My flight IB 4190 from DFW to Paris on 11/11/17 @ 17:55 was operated by American Airline. I was denied to pay for my second check in bag for the simple reason that I didn't buy my ticket with American Airline!! According to American Airline agent (Danielle) at the counter, a ticket purchased with Iberia only allow 1 check bag for free and you are not allow to check in an additional bag. I called the travelling agency and Iberia customer service agent (Jose) while I was at the airport. They both told me that I should go with the luggage rule of American Airline which allow passenger to pay for a second bag. Danielle refused to talk to both agents I called. I need someone to tell me how my luggage can be send to me to Paris please. I had a very bad experience with this trip. Please help clarify the discrepancy!"
Cons: "There were 2 flights going to Roanoke at almost the same time. The other one was delayed by a lot; ours by a little. But personnel DIDN'T TELL US WHAT WAS GOING ON. We were all standing around wondering what was happening.It's the NOT KNOWING that is so horrible. We could tell from the screen that it was delayed, but it was clear the flight would leave much later than the screen said, but they wouldn't tell us anything!"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Some glitch said the flight was delayed, when it wasn't. Good thing I checked with the Check In Counter."
Pros: "Entertainment Captain Food"
Pros: "The plane was cleaned, the movie was good and the food was good with lower price. It was a no problem flight and on time."
Pros: "Aircraft was cool"
Cons: "Small children"
Cons: "30 minutes late taking off. Therefore arrived late."
Pros: "Service, attitude, great hospitality. Was never treated this nice on any flight ever."
Cons: "Fact that I have to fly different airlines in the future"
Pros: "How friendly the staff at the gate always are."
Cons: "How lazy and unfriendly the staff at the ticket counter in LA are. I really hate that they make you check in yourself PLUS print out your own bags tags while they just stand there looking at you. What a waste of time and my money paying to be on this flight!"
Pros: "The TVs/back of the chairs were great because they could shut off completely so there was no screen glare when you want to sleep, the headphone jack worked with good sound quality, and there was a decent movie selection. Staff was courteous and the food was fine."
Cons: "This flight itself was great overall. No complaints. The only thing I didn't like was that I'd wanted to book a return direct flight on American Airlines as well, but the price skyrocketed from a few hundred to over $2200, which is just outrageous, so I booked TAP Portugal instead. My friend paid under $600 round trip and it boggles the mind that the same flights shot up to over $2k... It's not realistic to expect customers to stay loyal to an airline that prices them out."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Diverted due to low weather and low fuel. Sat on the tarmac for almost two hours before we could get fuel and be on our way."
Cons: "Crew a little slow flight departed later all wwll"
Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."
Cons: "I missed the connection in London and had to wait 5 hours for another flight. This was only due the fact that there is no help to passengers in connection. I had over an hour and a half to get to my flight but waiting for the busses and to commute to the right gate took so long that I missed my flight."
Cons: "My direct flight was cancelled. My rescheduleday flight was delayed and I missed my connection and had to spend the night in the airport. My 2 1/2 hour flight turned into a 16 hour trip."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Pros: "The boarded quickly and had our flight arrive back to Toronto a little earlier than expected"
Cons: "There wasn't any in flight entertainment systems and the app they said you need to watch movies wouldn't download. Pretty boring over all"
Pros: "Entertainment was not available for the latest Safari browser 10."
Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."
Cons: "the flight was 4 hours late. we were constantly shuffled to different gates. the internet on the flight didn't work."
Pros: "Great steward with fabulous sense of humor"
Pros: "Good view"
Cons: "Breakfast does not have good things to eat. Too cheap ones.."
Cons: "The seats are terrible. On the first leg I couldn't use the back of the seat. Four hours hunched over in a tiny space is not fun."
