Excellent Premium Economy service with VIRGIN Atlantic

Recommended Posts

Just did a 12-day roundtrip KIAD-EGLL with my family of 5 in Virgin's Premium Economy. It was superb both ways in the A340-300. I am a very jaded air traveller (ask Tom!), but can't ever afford to pay Biz Class, so this was a very nice discovery for me, a kind of "junior" biz class at a price I can more or less afford. For a 50% premium over regular coach we got huge seats 20" wide with an 8" recline, 38" pitch, a nice footrest, wide armrests so that you don't bump your neighbor, great food and good cabin service. To top it all, the air was beautifully cool, plentiful, and refreshing all the way there and back; can't say the same for my longtime airline, UAL, which routinely overheats most cabins and removes oxygen through endless recirculation. The net result was that we didn't lose a moment of our holiday time because we arrived in great shape on both sides of the Pond and felt wonderful. That's worth serious cash in your pocket and it also removes the feeling of dread about doing the trip with the family.So, good for me to see that in this increasingly dreadful--indeed, positively hostile-- world of pax aviation, there are some real gems remaining. Rock on, Virgin !JS
