I've never flown VS, but I have several other airlines 744, both upper and lower levels. Personally, I HATE being on the upper level...in ANY class. To me, it is just a small cabin, and I much prefer the large cabin around me. If I want a small, narrow cabin I'll fly a single-aisle smaller plane. Every time I end up on top, I have to go down the stairs 2-3 times during the flight (I'm always on long, trans-Pacific flights, it seems) and just walk up and down the aisles for a few minutes before returning to my cramped quarters upstairs.
And if I'm upstairs on a 12 hour plus flight that leaves the west coast around midnight and basically flies in the dark the entire trip it's kind of unbearable to me. In fact, I always TRY to get a flight that will be a daylight flight all the way, but sometimes there is nothing available. Bummer!!
I just really hate the small cabin...especially on a very long dark flight. Give me the main deck anytime!
Those who want to do something will find a way; those who don't will find an excuse.

Thanks you guys for your comments.
AzoresLover - I know just what you mean. Going upper I suppose does mean feeling like being on a smaller aircraft when one gets a bit of a buzz from travelling wide-body. However, I think a compramise might be worth trying here: Out on the upper, home on the lower to enable comparison. If the upper really does appeal to me, then I can always change my plans on the return!
