What has happened to Virgin....they used to be great 10 years ago but it's all gone a bit wrong.
Flight back from Cuba...upon checkin in we were told due to a very full premium economy cabin we wouldn't be sitting together...instead we'd be on opposite sides of the plane. Well I guess these things happen...
Except on boarding...I'm sitting next to a guy who's friend is sitting in the seat behind....next to someone is travelling alone. So we swap so at least someone is sitting next to the right person...bit odd!
But then all becomes clear when a large group of virgin "friends and family" turn up having just been upgraded from economy. But being upgraded isn't special enough...no they all have to sit together and the rest of us...well we don't actually matter so we can just sit anywhere!
Poor Virgin...now on my list of airlines to avoid. Rule of thumb...people who pay for flights come first...otherwise your airline won't be around very much longer!
