Virgin Atlantic Rip-Off

#1
Phoned the Virgin HM Forces Discount flight desk to ask how much for a return ticket to Florida - 'we can do that for £930'. Having checked on the Virgin website, it would have normally cost me £490!!

After pointing out the disparity, the operator told me that the price reflected that the itenerary could be changed without the standard charges! He laso mentioned that he had not taken such a booking for a very long time!

Virgin Atlantic - rip off!!

Great airline. I always fly Virgin Atlantic when I go to the US or Australia.

Skyscanner is the way forwards for flights.

My friend has just qualled as a Virgin stewie and has offered me some excellent discounts come Nov when her probation finishes.

That's the way to do it....

Hell yes. She's blonde, VERY well upholstered and an absolutely lovely person. I've whiled many a happy hour away perving at her pics on Facebook.

No pics on here though, I value my potential discount. :)

Worse has to be BA and the nasty creaking trolley grannies. They have to be nasty to everyone, they were beautiful in the 70's, now they've legs like sacks of sprouts.
I don't want to pay to look at these ugly nasty people. BA 'service with a grunt'

Absolutely,

I recently flew BA HKG-LHR-HKG and the staff (who were all my age and I'm mid-50's) treated the passengers as though they were a massive inconvenience.

Thank you all so much for your comments with regard to BA.... I'm flying with them this Thursday and am now really looking forward to the experience.....

If you ever need to visit the Middle East, use BMI (and preferably in Business Class if you can!). Two reasons: I flew home to UK on Cat A Compassionate recently - had an ever so helpful, gorgeous young stewardess, practically look after me from stepping on board - gave me a sack full of Scotch and a soothing 'there, there, there' - all this, in economy. On their routine flights, its open bar, despite flying into/out of 'dry states'. On a a recent flight back in Business, I was amazed to fidn they had a chef! Never in my wildest dreams had I thought some guy would come to your seat and say, "Im xxxxx and on this flight i'll be your chef" - Chuffin marvellous to get your breakfast cooked to order as you skip over Europe on the descent to LHR! No bacon sandwiches though, but thats the beauty of business lounges - last chance saloons to fill your face and bag with allsorts of naughtiness! I concur with the theme on BA - grumpy, frumpy and made to feel like an inconvenience. Shame.
