Virgin Atlantic is to me the best airline for long haul enconomy flights. Excellent service, great staff, good food and lots to drink (water, juice, cola, etc) all through the flight. But by far is the entertainment. Choose your own movie when you want and they always have loads of the hottest flicks. TV for every taste as well as music. but the games system is the most impressive. Games to suit all tastes and skill levels from kids to grandparents! Leg room is pretty good as well, better than most for long haul economy, but with all there is to do and watch, you dont even notice the space!
Kids reap the benefits as well, getting a very nice bookbag stuffed with lots of goodies for the flight, andVirgin staff take extra pain to make the kdis feel comfortable.
Virgin's redesigned cabins boast some of the biggest restrooms I have ever been in on board a plane. You do not feel as though you have to be super flexible in order to have your 'toilette'.
Virgin's staff at their hub at London Heathrow are top notch, and this applies to all their destinations as well. Good service for the able bodied, but truly outstanding service for the disabbleed asl well. You cant beat Virgin!
