Hey Y'all. I am looking to book a flight LAS to LON and the prices on MaxJet and Virgin (Premium Economy) are just about the same. Is there anybody out there who has flown both and can give me a heads-up as to which service is better. Thanks in advance for your help!!!

You can't tell the difference between VS Y+ or MY?

Seems pretty plain & easy to me.

Once again my post has been moved. I was hoping to get as much feedback as possible, which wont happen here. The Airliners.net Gestapo strikes again. Oh well. The round trip fare was around $1500.00

If I were you I would definitely give MaxJet a shot, if their price is similar or not that much more compared to VS Prem. Econ (I haven't flown either of course, but I just extensively researched both products so I can provide some insight). You get a biz class-style seat w/ 60" pitch compared to a big coach seat w/ generous pitch, but not 60". You also get pre-flight lounge access, which I doubt you get on VS Prem. Y. The meals I think are about the same on both, but I think MaxJet has a fancier presentation if you care about that(they set out tablecloths, I don't know about VS in prem. Y, but I doubt they do). I also think both offer similar amenity kits (MaxJet gives out noise-cancelling headsets and hot towels, don't know about VS prem. Y). The one advantage VS does have is a more modern cabin/newer equipment. If you're into IFE, VS has MaxJet beat(MaxJet only uses digital video players, which are definitely previous generation but are adequate in my opinion). The MaxJet 762's have previous generation biz class seats (they're very similar to the old TWA seat) but are definitely adequate. They're 767-200's are getting a bit long in the tooth (most, if not all, are ex-Qantas birds that are close to 25 years old) but are still nice enough planes. To sum it all up, Maxjet seems to be a great bargain as you get a "budget" biz class product that isn't world class like BA Club World, VS Upper Class (and probably not quite as nice as the US legacy carriers), but is better than premium economy on VS or world traveller plus on BA if the price is right. I hope I've helped you out and have a great trip! Smile

This thread asks for opinions of X's product over Y's product, so it's location indeed should be Polls & Prefs.

If there are no other deciding factors like, arrival airport at LON, timings, membership in any FF-program, I would go for MaxJet. I was considering using them to the U.S. recently, but timings (and connections) turned out to be unfavourable for me (on the European side).
But I am looking at being transported from A to B in comfort (with "A" usually being my homebase, thus liniting carrier options), but will hardly make any use of such gadgets as IFE. Gimme some space (= more than in Y or Y+) to sleep and I will be a happy customer. Chip in some good food, and you are on your way to make me a loyal customer.

I love VS but if you are wanting business class and if VS Upper Class is out of your price range, then try MaxJet. One thing that I have seen is that they have had a quite a few cancellations recently due to aircraft shortages. MaxJet doesn't compare to Upper Class or Club World but is ahead of Premium Economy. Shame Upper Class isn't a bit cheaper really...
