The ‘Virgin coffin’ is a compromise and offers excellent space & comfort for an overnight flight. Whilst it may give a good view of other passengers, one can happily sit & ‘mind one’s own business’.
BA’s ‘paired seating’ offers 8 abreast seating on the main deck, & at 6’2″ tall, I find the seating cramped.
Staff are ‘professional’ on both BA & VS. I would agree that the VS staff are a little more ‘bling’, ‘in your face’, loud & chatty. BA staff tend to be more discrete, less involving & perform their roles without so much ‘sociability’.
