“Very comfortable and a value!”
Review of Virgin Atlantic Airways


Reviewed 12 May 2018

This is a very nice new airline which flies direct from Raleigh Durham to San Francisco. Although no airline feeds you anymore, it at least has a screen of menu options and you can order at anytime for pay. An extensive selection of movies was provided right at your seat making the 6 hour flight go quickly. For some reason, we had to take United back and was on time but not as commodious as Virgin Atlantic. The round trip was a bargain based on the fact that both flights were non-stop.

Appointed seats were close to the toilet located in centre seats, constantly disturbed, toilets not illustrated on the on-line seating plan.
Entertainment System was easy to use, great selection of movies, shows and music.
Crew were very professional, meals and beverages were good quality with regular top ups without issues.
Seats did not have great leg room, but I am 6` 3`` tall.
On Line App was good, apart from the seating plan as detailed above.
Recommended.
