Crew was very nice, we got drink/service options often for a large flight.

— A couple who had two middle seats apart disrupted our whole boarding by trying to persuade everyone around us to give up an aisle or window seat so they could sit together. I felt pressured to give in which made me mad. I wondered if they paid for Basic Economy and then still got their way on seats. — WiFi is just crazy expensive at $32. Even as a business traveler I felt guilty buying it. I wish I had seen pricing before the flight and/or understood if I could’ve gotten a discount for purchasing in advance. — Didn’t hav the snack I wanted...it’s a long 6 hour flight — I wish there were more food options.

It took a really long time to board not sure why and the food didn’t taste bad but made me a little sick to my stomach afterwards.

I like that I arrived at my destination in the end and that my overhead reading light worked.

The entertainment system was useless. Not only did tapping the screen take a million taps to register one tap, the audio didn’t work at all. The seat next to me even had something lodged into the audio jack.

I’m a loyal VA customer and am sad that they were forced to sell. The employees have excellent service attitude and are efficient and seem to actually like their jobs which usually translates to a better customer experience.

This flight was excellent in every way. When I was going through security in Newark they caught my 5oz NY special hot sauce :( I purchased it for my husband's Christmas present. So I went back and asked Virgin staff if there was any way they could check my bag. They listened to my story and had pity on me and checked my bag. The flight was smooth, entertainment was excellent. Then, I left my water bottle and chocolate bar on the plane when I deplaned, so when I immediately remembered I came back. While I waited outside the door the kind staff went to my seat to retrieve my forgotten items. Thank you Virgin for having great people!!!

I like everything except boarding groups.

Boarding groups are an issue every single time for me. I check in 24 hours in advance always. I am an elevator member. I ha e sat in at least 10 different rows all over the plane front to back. But somehow I am always boarding group B and it seems like 100 people are boarding group A. I have asked many times and the staff assured me it’s based on where you’re sitting but clearly that’s just not true. I would like an explanation as to how you choose boarding group A. (I.e. I would like to know the exact rows I need to book to get boarding group A. I am sick of having to board in the middle of the pack or last when I am Incredibly punctual and efficient with my bookings and timing.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
