Ok here's my update having just returned from NYC on Tuesday morning … Ok here's my update having just returned from NYC on Tuesday morning after 6 days there.I flew out with Delta which was pretty bog standard.Had a great 6 days out there having booked an apartment through Airbnb which was close to Central Park and easy subway access.Get the 7 day unlimited subway/metro pass if you're intending to use it as it's worth way more than its $30 value and I used mine loads to get all over the city!A New York Pass is also good value if you intend on doing lots of sightseeing. I'd got one previously and did it again this time to see lots of bits I hadn't done last time - there are discount codes online to reduce this price further - got a 2 day pass for $119 and picked it up over there.The flight back was amazing - apart from the check in. When I got to JFK the initial check in and boarding pass/bag check in was fine, however the security check line was immense and was queuing almost out the entrance door to the terminal! So get there in plenty of time in case this is a regular thing. I had to literally push my way through the queues and ask staff for help just so I didn't miss my flight, and the other guys queuing were extremely helpful and understanding.I flew back with Virgin and managed to get a seat on the upper deck - having changed my seat online the previous night when I checked in 24 hrs earlier. As a result there were 3 cabin crew serving about 10 people in economy where I was and the 4 in upper class, so I got free champagne, extra food and drinks and was so well looked after. The staff were amazing.I did not bother asking for my luggage to be checked to LHR when checking in at JFK as based on previous posts this was a pointless task.On arrival at LHR I picked up my bags along with everyone else in the same terminal I arrived at - terminal 3. No need to go to terminal 5 or speak to BA staff.My final leg flight was to Oslo and was almost exactly 24 hrs later, so I don't know if this made any difference with the bag. Unfortunately I couldn't make this flight!!!!!!Also at JFK they didn't ask me where my final destination would be e.g Oslo, and that possibly had something to do with the online check in which just showed my flight from JFK to LHR. I did this on the Virgin App which was really useful.Anyway guys, this was soooooo worth the trip with the cost of the flight so big big thanks to the OP for this deal.Effectively the extra leg to Oslo made no difference whatsoever for me with regards to my bags or questions asked or anything.I hope the rest of you enjoy your trips away and have an equally good experience.
