Quoting Bigginhill (Thread starter): Just looked at the Virgin website at their Upper class seats/ sleeper beds on their 747-400.
Has anyone experienced this? Is it worth the extra money (£2500 return?) to Las Vegas.
It looked kinda cramped to me?
VS upperclass is anything but cramped. It is often considered the best international business class going.
Quoting Cabinboy (Reply 2): ALL VS744 AC ( LHR AND LGW AC) ARE SUITE FITTED! THE LGW AC ALSO HAVE A BAR BUT DO NOT HAVE A BEAUTY THERAPIST ON BOARD THO YOU CAB GET TREATMENTS PRIOR TO BOARDING IN THE CLUB LOUNGE!
TURN YOUR CAPS LOCK OFF

Quoting Bigginhill (Reply 4): Not too worried about the beauty therapist - she would look at me and say "sorry Sir, this is only a 10 hour flight"!!
Not a big deal, like you said. In fact I don't even think you're guaranteed to get a massage.
I'd actually recommend that you go in UC westbound if its only the option of one or the other. For one thing its a longer flight and you'll get the benefit of the Clubhouse! Don't know how good it is at LGW though.
Whatever you do, I'm sure that you will enjoy your flight on VS.
Bigginhill, Check out: www.v-flyer.com and or trip reports on here. V-flyer has very detailed reports by Virgin flyers as it's one of their websites. It's actually kinda neat and fun. You can also see pictures of their meals on www.airlinemeals.net .
