Pros: Great service and comfortable ride excellent staff
Cons: Cannot expect better service
Pros: People were friendly. Flight was comfortable.
Cons: Staff incorrectly assessed documents needed for visas, and told us we were incomplete and needed to return home. Instead of looking up policy, we were denied boarding mid-flight, missed a wedding, and had to spend three days in London instead of our destination. Also, we got bug bites during the flight that turned out to be from bed bugs, which followed us home and caused much frustration for months.

Cons: Seats in economy too cramped - I paid extra for next seat up from basic economy which covered our baggage but, for some reason, not seats with more leg room.

With headquarters and main operating hubs in London, Virgin Atlantic focuses predominantly on long-haul transcontinental flights to North America, Africa, Asia and South America. They also use a secondary hub in Manchester to help manage the load of these services.
The airline is jointly owned by the Virgin Group, Air France-KLM and Delta Air Lines. As a benefit of the partnership with Delta Air Lines, Virgin Atlantic can make use of their hubs and facilities throughout the United States to provide better service to customers. A joint partnership is also in place with Air France-KLM. Codeshare agreements are in place with Singapore Airlines, Air China and Air New Zealand, among others.
You can choose between Economy, Premium and Upper Class (their version of Business Class). Premium passengers will be served a glass of champagne upon boarding, while amenity kits featuring beauty creams and aromatherapy sprays are supplied if you have a night-time flight. Enjoy a glass of wine from prominent suppliers Berry Bros & Rudd in Upper Class, along with hot and cold meals served on designer plates and cutlery. Upper Class is the only section with seats that fully recline to a flat bed.
Virgin Atlantic chooses to use exclusively Airbus and Boeing aircraft, with a fondness for wide-body planes that are capable of flying long distances. Models such as the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 are some of the most common. A distinctive red tail emblazoned with the airline’s logo can be spotted from a distance. All of the aircraft have feminine names like Queen Of Hearts and Mamma Mia.
