The first thing I realised was that for them the scheduled long haul flight with Virgin Atlantic was part of the holiday experience and they both said they would highly recommend Virgin.
We flew from Manchester where there are 2 flights a day – you can also fly non stop direct to Orlando with Virgin from Gatwick and Glasgow. Luckily we had ‘English Rose’ which is one of the refurbished 747s which meant that we had lovely newly upholstered seats and on demand entertainment.
The girls loved the welcome cocktails and the fact that you could have drinks through out the flight as required. They also like the choice of meals and thought that the service was very good. Even the ‘feel good’ kit with the toothbrush and paste caused excitement.
