Never flown CO, but I have flown VS, and man, it's not too good. What little extras do you mean? They both have PTVs in economy (considering you don't take the 757 on CO), they both get you from point A to point B. I know American airline F/A's aren't the best, but VS F/A's are crap in my eyes. Food is food...it's not gonna be the greatest on either, nor is it going to be the worst. I would take CO if I were you...people on this thread treat VS like it's the Queens personal airline, that it is amazing...it really isn't, hate to say it. I personally will probably never fly them again.

Ive always liked VS, plus the frequent flyers program is quite generous.
I also noticed that the prices are often cheaper than CO and you even have the choice of several flights.
As CO code share with VS on the NYC flights, its possible to book one way with each on Virgin Atlantic's website. Kills two birds with one stone. A340-600 out, 777 back.
The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only

VS generally has a slight edge on CO. Both airlines rank quite high in customer satisfaction so you can't go wrong either way. VS is often cited as the best international airline based in Europe, while CO is often cited as the best international airline based in North America. Both offer a very good passenger experience. But if I had to choose just one, I'd go with Virgin Atlantic. And as some have suggested, feel free to mix it up with their codeshare just to try both of them and see what you think.
