Constantly I am committing flights from London to San Francisco. Very convenient route, no delays. Flights are always timely. Returning then to Russia, I can see how far behind in terms of service, even well-known aviation giants.

During the flight, the plane almost got into a zone of turbulence, which once again proves the professionalism of the pilots and the general training of staff to resolve panic.

Nice to know that the company is not in place and continues to progress for the better. Good luck to you!

Flight delayed at 15 minutes. Airplane, though not too big, but very cozy. I got a good place, passengers peacefully snuffle around. The silence was such that even if a fly flew all to hear. Issued to all blankets, brand new, beautiful. Very pleased that flew with them. When planting filmed everything on video right out of the window. How nice, in a word!

Many times I have traveled with Virgin Atlantic Airways and meeting in two weeks' leave, of course, I did not change my habit. Twice a year I fly to the Caribbean and 1 time I flew with BA. The British, unlike Virgin I was completely disappointed, despite his advanced status and advertising. Staff on board the rough, perceive you as an enemy, and from each question irritated. Virgin Atlantic is much better! If you fly with it, the feeling that the holiday starts on board the aircraft. The staff is well trained, they perform all your requests with pleasure. I once asked to set up your monitor and ran everything. Something clicked, tinkering eventually transplanted to my wife in the business class, because there was no place to save and set up the system failed. Service is worth the money that you give. Good interior lighting, great entertainment and convenient locations. There is one minor flaw - a small thickness of the pads. Of course, the aircraft is not a hotel, but I would like to pillows were a little thicker. Good food. While one passenger complained that her child wants a pizza, and it is not. It was difficult to explain that in an aircraft is no restaurant and offer nuggets, pizza, hamburgers, etc. for each child with a different flavor, they can not. Excellent airline recommend.
