Not much in it, really. It will be a T7 on BA or a 744 on VS - don't know if you have a preference. I think the meals and entertainments etc are much of a muchness between them - both fine. One 'googlie' for you - as BA's T7s have such a small Y cabin, whereas VS's LGW 744s have a massive Y cabin, that I hear there is a much better chance of an u**rade if you have status with BA, as if the small Y cabin is overbooked, the proportional chance of moving to W are better.Make of that what you will.

whatever you get, it will be better catering for sure than VS, especially from USA-London. Virgin is a lot of hype and economy is truly uncomfortable, obviously cut-back-to-charter-level service, and young inexperienced crew. There are of course the occasional great crew, but again let down by the catering. Entertainment is better on VS, however for a transatlantic flight BA has PVTs also in Eco. Overall I think BA>
