The stewardesses were very kind and helpful
I enjoyed my flight, very comfortable and good communication.I liked the fact that there was acknowledgement of staff shortage and reassurance to provide excellent service! Shout to Ian and colleagues who helped me find a window seat, my phone and passport i miss placed when i had a little panic.please do share this with virgin atlantic !!!! The Pilot was the best!
Your check in area was confusing. First no one was there and then we were directed to Delta ro check in. How was I supposed to know this?we were there for an hour before discovering where to go. I looked on line for checking at Virgin Atlantic but it should have been Delta. I wasn't contacted by email for check in durections.
Terrible service of rescheduling, which never happened! Well I will not recommend you for other because the service does not work!! Thank you
Flight attendants were courteous, efficient and friendly Entertainment had lots of selection Seats were fairly comfortable Food was almost inedible
Check in is poorly marked Heathrow lounge was excellent, service very good New Virgin upper class suites technically qualify as business class but they are very cramped and there is no storage space at all. No sleep suits available in my size, on any of the flights. Rather leave it if you can't deliver. Toiletry bag is cheap and tacky. Compare with the price paid for a business class ticket.
The Delta plane was super uncomfortable and the food was terrible.
Booked AVML meals in Premium Economy. The check in agent reconfirmed this. Also she said this was a standard offering in the route. Turns out they didn’t have AVML in a 10+ hour flight. Unacceptable
Crew is amazing food was great and movies are top notch
There was a lot of delay in getting a wheel chair. Single person doing for multiple people at Heathrow airport. Since you know in advance how many need wheel chair assistance, it would have been better if more wheel chairs and persons were available. Had to wait for almost an hour after landing after a 10:30 HR flight. The economy classic leg room was so bad, that it is very difficult for senior citizens to getup from seat, if the front seat passenger is reclining. The cabin crew were very very helpful in providing the special assistance. But for them the flight would have been very difficult.
Positives: The extra seat room in premium class was very nice and comfortable. The cabin staff were excellent, very helpful and pleasant. Negatives: On the downside, my wife and I sat apart. Also, when we tried to change our seats so that we could sit together, the faulty Virgin website kept taking me to meals rather than to seating. Finally, when we tried phoning, we were told that the waiting time to speak to someone was 3 hours!
Ease of check in to boarding. Clean Aircraft. Food was of poor quality
All good no comment
Nothing the crew were very helpful
It was all fine.
There were many cancelled flights from Heathrow due to crew shortages. I was glad our flight had just enough attendants to fly, but they worked very hard & remained polite & helpful. Very impressive
It was far too cold. Had to wear my coat and use the blanket. Very unpleasant.
Everything was either 9/10 or 10/10 except for the food. It is absolutely atrocious. I mean literally the worst airplane food I've ever had, on both legs of the trip. Not a problem, just pack a bunch of sandwiches and snacks and decline the food when offered. Everything else was fantastic and I'd happily make the exact same booking again, just... with extra food in my carry-on.
The in flight crew were not friendly. One flight attendant in particular kept passing by and hit me really hard with her body as she passed by and never once apologized or said excuse me. I’m his startled me every time. I got a drink only 2 times in 9 hours and when I asked for a drink of water I did not get. Also when I put the call button on, no one came. This made me sad as I’ve been very polite as always and I don’t fly with any other airlines.
The crew was accommodating
Staff are Experience and helpful and cheerful makes you feel at home good airlines 👍
It was all good as usual .Virgin and Delta work really good together so keep it up and I will be back in December😜👍john harrington
No amenity kits and meals weren’t as good as before. Other airlines now have a full meal son o reason why Virgin Atlantic can’t. Going to stick to BA.
Comfortable flight. Lots of space.
BOM-LHR premium economy - fab service/product. Worth the extra posh pounds!
They booked me on two different trips, then the agents deleted both trips, and then my flight got canceled and they didn’t tell me
Boarded, departed and arrived early. Perfectly comfortable for an economy flight and spare seats allowed us to spread a bit. Decent food and plenty of drinks to keep us going. Excellent in flight entertainment system. Friendly and helpful staff. We were not able to check-in online, so had to do this at the airport, not long before the flight. Assume this was why our family of 4 was not seated together. It is rather frustrating to be sent a link to to check-in and then be denied without any explanation.
Clean and comfortable short flight. Arrived on time.
Amazing seat was assigned to me, great food, attention and entertainment Nice airplane!
