Has anyone flown with Virgin to Antigua recently? Was the aircraft one of the newer in the fleet with the new seats in premium economy and the vport entertainment system?
We flew with them last year and were lucky enough to be one of the first few flights allowed once the airports re opened after the volcanic ash cloud restrictions were lifted. However when another passenger comented on the 'tatty' appearence of the interior of the aircraft they were told it usually operated the Orlando route and consequently had been battered slightly by lots of children! The individual handset controls for the entertainment system on the upper deck didnt work and some of the seats didnt move.
On the return the entertainment system didnt work at all and once again we heard people complaining about seats not moving and a couple complaining about rips in their seats.
I guess the important thing is that the airline and aircraft get you there safely but i just wondered if anyone has had a better experience recently, we fly back to Antigua with Virgin Atlantic for our holiday in 8 weeks.
