I was wondering what the consensus was on their 747-400s? Are their new ones better than the older ones?

Having flown VS on both the 742 and 744 (in Coach), I'd say the 742s were better- but only because the PTV/Entertainment system was better on the 742s. Otherwise, based on my experiences with them I'd say the Coach 'Experience' on VS is mediocre at best.

Do you mean their new 747-400's vs. the ones they took delivery of between 1994 and 1997 (the original six aircraft?)

I have flown Ruby Tuesday, Tinker Belle, and Lady Penelope and they are all fine aircraft. There was only a minor difference, in that Ruby Tuesday was a newer one, delivered in 1996 or 1997 and had a different entertainment system than the other two planes. Virgin has two entertainment platforms, Arcadia and Odyssey. Odyssey was the newer one and the PTV screens on Ruby Tuesday were bigger.

I flew Virgin on the following routes:

August 1998 LHR-JFK, VS 009 A340-300 Rainbow Lady
August 1998 JFK-LHR, VS 010, A340 Maiden Toulouse
Nov. 1998 LHR-JFK, VS 003 B744, Lady Penelope
Nov. 1998 JFK-LHR, VS 010 B744, Tinker Belle
April 1999 LHR-EWR, VS 001 B744, Ruby Tuesday
April 1999 JFK-LHR, VS 004 B744 Lady Penelope
August 1999 JFK-LHR, VS 26 A340 Lady in Red
August 1999 LHR-JFK, VS 9 B741 Spirit of Sir Freddie
May 2000 JFK-LHR, VS 10 A340, China Girl

All fabu flights.
