UK to New York
  • When we arrived our first experience of Virgin was at the check in desks
  • The queue was quite long but the speed and efficiency of the Virgin check in staff was impressive as we were done within twenty minutes when I thought we maybe there for up to an hour
  • Their speed didn't infringe on there ability to be polite and friendly which was also very good, I was very impressed with the standard of the Virgin check in and hoped the rest of our experience with them would be just as good
  • The breakfast was large and very hot and tasted great, I really enjoyed it
  • Take and landing with them was very good we did hit quite a bit of turbulence mid way through the flight which wasn't a problem but the crew handled it well not seeming to spill and drinks while they were serving

      Last month Lyndsey and I flew over to New York with Virgin Airways using some of the air miles we had collected on my travels with work. We flew out of Gatwick to New York JFK airport. When we arrived our first experience of Virgin was at the check in desks. As we had managed to get premium economy seats I had gone online to do most of the check in. So all we needed was our boarding cards and to give them our luggage. The queue was quite long but the speed and efficiency of the Virgin check in staff was impressive as we were

      done within twenty minutes when I thought we maybe there for up to an hour. Their speed didn’t infringe on there ability to be polite and friendly which was also very good, I was very impressed with the standard of the Virgin check in and hoped the rest of our experience with them would be just as good. The staff were also very well turned out.

      We boarded the plane on time which from the outside looked quite new and very clean. The cabin crew that greeted us were very smart and also very friendly showing us to our seats and making us feel very welcome and as if ...


      • nothing would be too much trouble on our flight. The pilot came on the pa system and gave a very long brief of what would be happening how long it would take etc, this was very informative.

        The flight itself was very enjoyable as long haul flights go, the food we were served was very good. The breakfast was large and very hot and tasted great, I really enjoyed it. Lunch was also a very tasty chicken dish which I also enjoyed, it is only normally the breakfast which I enjoy but the lunch was good too. We were also well served by the cabin crew who were

        professional and friendly throughout the whole flying experience.

        Take and landing with them was very good we did hit quite a bit of turbulence mid way through the flight which wasn’t a problem but the crew handled it well not seeming to spill and drinks while they were serving. The landing was so smooth I didn’t realise we were down. When we were getting ready to land the cabin crew gave us the forms we needed and told how to fill them in even giving us a free Virgin pen.

        Overall I was very impressed with Virgin Atlantic and will defiantly recommend them to everyone and fly with them again myself.
