Cabin Crew are a credit to their profession. Long time since I flew virgin, mainly choose Emirates where possible who can be hit and miss. I forgot about the exemplary attitude to customers given by the Virgin Crews. Top Marks

No audio entertainment available - option button worked but there was no material behind it. Poor choice of films

The staff on the plane were absolutely amazing, and I wish I'd got a note of their names to say how lovely and helpful they were. They found us seats with loads of legroom as the flight was quiet, and when my friend was a bit ill, they found her some medicine and looked after her really well.

Happy with the flight, but was unable to contact the airline to request a special meal. Expedia were very helpful and requested this for me, but it wasn't confirmed until check-in.
