I will be travelling on a VS 744 in Upper Class and i wanted to know if it is better to sit in the nose section or the section right behind the nose (rows 15-18).

Thanks

I suggest you look up http://www.v-flyer.com/ for all you would ever want to know about Virgin. In particular, you can look up any aircraft configuration and get ratings and comments on the seating - in all classes. It is an extremely useful and helpful wesite.

I would perfer Zone B as I find the nosecose claustrophobic, but each to their own!

It depends on the route and on the direction. If you are going east coast-LHR at night and don't want to be disturbed, you should sit in the upper deck (dedicated snooze zone).

I thought the front nosecone section was the Quiet Zone unless they have changed it. If you plan in sleeping at all make sure you are a couple of rows in front of the bar if you happen to get in the second section. It isn't too bad but the lights and noise can disturb you some farther back.

I also hear right at the front can be bad, especially with the massage area.

BA747

As long as you are not in the two seats right next to the work area you are fine. That for reference would be on the right side of the aircraft

It is not as though the masseuse is on the floor doing her stuff.

I have flown in the front section opposite the masseuse work station (left side of the aircraft and it was fine.I just have a personal preference for seats 15-17A
15-17K

was that for the entire length of the flight? Were you naked? Did you find the bar area cold as well? Did you mention the temp to the FAs?
