Has anyone done VA Upper Class on this route?
Is the service as good as it is from London?
Indeed I have done this route a few times, although they stopped it for a while when they replaced the 747 with a 2 class plane, Airbus something or other. In fact, last time I flew this route I met a lovely couple from my home town who I am still in contact with! (Turns out we were to both be staying at The Grand Floridian and we met for dinner etc)
If it is the 747, you are in for the seating in the nose of the plane with the Virgin bar, comfy seats, nice small cabin and decent food. The downside (and it is only a modest one) is that the lounge they use is that dreadful Servisair one….it is THE worst lounge I’ve been in bar none.
Good to know this route is back on in Upper Class, I would heartily recommend it, every bit as good as the UC from anywhere. I flew with them to San Fran/LAX a few years ago in a much larger Upper Class cabin and didn’t enjoy it nearly as much, I far prefer the exclusivity of the jumbo’s nose.
