Found 20th Dec 2010
Virgin Atlantic have a sale on just now for various departing dates

You can fly Heathrow to JFK in NYC for £350

I flew with them to Orlando in summer there and its probably the best plane iv ever been on for standard economy tickets. On board you get unlimited drinks (alcoholic and soft), and your inflight meal and luggage is all included in the price.

haha dont say that im meant 2 b goin 2 nyc in early january!oO

Sorry but they were dreadful flying to Vegas in May. Very old planes, with prehistoric video systems and inedible food on the way back. They ran out of alcohol 6 hours into an 11 hour flight . I'm sure they are better on the new planes but the ones flying out of Gatwick, which includes Orlando, are very poor.

Looking to go to NY and Vegas with them next year... think this is the same sale that's been on for awhile though. Doesn't cover my travel dates unfortunately. :-(

we flew with them to orlando in july, really old planes..
we had a rubbish flight, would not fly with them again!
especially as it cost us £800 each..

The Gatwick fleet are not old planes.

Just the interior is rubbish, and trashed by the Orlando and holiday crowds.

At least with Virgin you are guaranteed to fly (weather permitting) with British Airways you never know when they'll be on strike.

Ba don't strike at Gatwick, so if your going from there you have no worries!!

we were told by the manager on our flight that gatwick planes were old..
no sick bags, no kids meals, not enough staff so only came round once with drinks, no game consoles for kids..
this is not down to 'holiday crowds trashing the plane'!!

JO-JO

Age should not matter for a plane, the airline has to maintain it fully, even with an older plane there is no excuse for broken seat backs etc.

But I can easily imagine all the things you mention, I'm not a great fan of Virgin Atlantic.

The night flights are the worst, the crews two main objectives are:

1) Get themselves to bed in the bunk bed as quickly as possible
2) Waste ages with makeup in the morning.

flew with Virgin, manchester to orlando. 4 hour delay one way then 5 hour delay coming back. very old plane and the waiters and waitress were rubbish, rude and a very poor attitude, wouldn't fly with these again.
