    I booked seats as aisle and middle of the centre 3 seat block (cost £60 for two seats - we booked before 17 March when the free booking option in economy became available. I chose row 46 as it is over wing and should be quieter than further back. On check-in we were allocated row 57! I ...

    Virgin Atlantic operates a daily flight from Dubai Terminal 1 to London Heathrow T3. I was particularly excited to see this flight was changed from an originally scheduled A330 (which, as a general statement, has poor Upper Class reviews) to a 787-900, which turned out to be ‘Birthday Girl’ the ...

    The flight was on time and the extra legroom seats we had purchased were well worth the money. Food and drink were good on the flight. The entertainment could have been better as I had trouble finding a film I actually wanted to watch however the tv screen worked well. I also bought the wifi ...

    The Virgin 787-900 Dreamliner experience is just amazing. It's by far the best jet aircraft I've ever flown on and I go back to the days of the 707 and the Comet then right on through Concorde and on to the A380 - this beats the lot of them.
