Hi anybody who has returned on the virgin flight bk to UK can I ask what was the food like
I’d pick up a sandwich!!!
Meagre portions - we grabbed a Subway before boarding at BGI and very glad we did.
Thank you for that what were the choices if you don't mind me asking
Is the food different depending on which class you are booked in, I,e, Upper / PE / E
General rule is the higher the class, the more dissapointing it is.
#5 when we went out virgin from Manchester, the announcement was x and y for economy and (same) x and y for premium.
There were 2 choices - veggie, think mushroom stroganoff and chicken tikka. We were premium and got the chicken tikka which was excellent, served in a ceramic bowl, think that’s the only difference in the meal given in economy.
Going back economy tomorrow and can post what we had.Edited: 25 August 2021, 02:56
#6 Very amusing. I will remember that Hector...
We are all different in our perceptions of what is offered. I have had about 40 clients in Virgin Upper in the past 6 weeks and almost all say it is considerably less appealing than it was. But some suggest that it is OK, while others say "I wouldn't go Upper again at that price". And others say "hardly surprising, what IS as good as it was?" By the way a similar siutation applies with BA, although I have had fewer clients on there.Edited: 25 August 2021, 19:13
On our last flight with Virgin back from Barbados. There was a beef stew of some description and a pasta dish, both of which, in my opinion were inedible! I just said no to breakfast! I agree with Hector except for the cutlery and dishes etc the quality of food irrespective of what class you fly is pretty poor. I normally end up only eating the cheese and sometimes the dessert. I will say the afternoon tea is quite good, but obviously not available and flights to the U.K.
We’ve travelled to Barbados with Virgin Upper and BA Club. We were more than happy with the food and service on all trips.
However, the old mantra about never ordering fish on a flight, would still apply!
(Someone on one of our return Virgin flights ordered a fish starter and a fish mains and was violently ill with s&d within an hour. His partner, who’d had a different meal said they’d had identical food and drink over the previous 24-hours and so they were convinced “that it had to be one of the fish choices”. Others in Upper were saying to never chose a airline fish meal. We’d been warned years before)
