I usually fly UA PS service, which I think is phenomenal for a domestic product. However, I have wanted to see how other carriers compare. I have heard great things about Virgin's first class service, so I decided to give it a try. This also allowed me to try SFO's new terminal 2, which I hadn't been to before, so this was also a first.

As is normal for me now, I do these TR's in a video format:

here are some photos of the trip also:

Nice.
I've flown them in first class on a short hop from SFO to LAX back in 2007 for an Airliners.net meet.
They were serving the booze quite liberally as folks were boarding the aircraft. It was awesome!
I think I finished off an entire bottle of Pinot noir prior to push back.
Our inflight meal was beef carpaccio with cheese, olive salad, chocolate mouse and more booze.
My cocktail was vodka tonic.
I was well sauced up prior to meeting up with N11OA, Dxing, Chares79 and a few other members. I needed it for that crowd!

Interesting. The only time I flew the United Airlines PS service was for another A.net meet in New York back in 2005.
The service was great and so was the meal. I forgot what beer they served on that flight.

Virgin America is a fantastic airline and I have a tremendous amount of respect for Sir Richard Branson who keeps airline travel fun & interesting.

Cool trip report!

PLEASE tell me you liberated the salt and pepper shakers! They were plastic after all and I am sure are NOT reused so they just end up in the trash anyways!

That is weird about not hanging up coats! Did the back of the seat in front of you at least have a peg or something you could hang it on?

I ask because those look like the identical seats that Delta uses as their "BusinessElite" seats on their 757s which they use on the NYC-LAX/SFO transcon service...Which comes with free lounge use if you are in F (either through paid or upgrade)

Hi Sfflyer, another fantastic trip report! VX looks awesome! I will be trying them on Thursday evening from SFO to FLL, although I won't be as lucky as you and I will be in steerage with the plebs    Plus I will be connecting from a long flight from SIN. By any chance do you know if SQ can interline with VX and as such can I skip on paying for checked in luggage?

I thought you could use the VS Clubhouse at the international terminal?

You are a light eater.
One of the comments was correct about the pricing on United P.S. 1st. class. They charge more money than Virgin America's 1st. class. Therefore, no lounge and coat hang ups.
I do remember my Virgin America 1st. class experience being more festive than your video. Perhaps that was just a short time introductory special.
I found their 1st. class seats to be more comfortable than lay-flat seats.
I like a lot of cushion. I don't need 25 different motors to adjust to 25 different positions. Those kinds of seats tend to have very thin cushions.

Thank you!. Apparently, Virgin Atlantic is related only in name to Virgin America. That is, Virgin America is only 25% owned by Virgin Atlantic, so the board and the decisions are all made by an American board, since they have 75% share. Of course, I'm sure Branson still has a huge say into what's going on with the airline, but technically, it they are separate entities.

Yes, the salt & pepper shakers were cool, right? Unfortunately, they got dirty with my food (you could see how I was a messy eater on this flight), so I could not take the little plane with me. I did look in the back of my seat, and there were no pegs like there are on many planes, unfortunately.

Thank you very much! Yeah, VX economy is great, though. You can watch TV the whole time, so the flight passes by very easily. It's actually a great economy product, I think. I am sure you will still have a great flight. Many times, SQ can check your bag onto VX, so you don't have to re-check it (that is, one airline can check a bag through onto another airline). However, if you come by SQ international, you will have to collect your bag anyway and then re-check it through customs. However, if you get it checked in all the way to FLL when you check in for your SQ flight, you just drop it off outside the customs terminal, and don't have to go upstairs to check it in again. Also, when you arrive, you arrive at the international terminal, but Virgin America is in terminal 2, so you have to change terminals also. I think the VS clubhouse is only for Virgin Atlantic, not Virgin America, unfortunately!

Thanks, but I was full this day. Usually, I am a very big eater. If you watch my Frankfurt-SFO or MUC-SFO first class videos on Lufthansa, you will see that I eat a lot of food normally! But for some reason, I was not hungry on this flight (I think I had already eaten lunch).

But with regards to P.S., I usualy fly the United PS business class, which is just as nice (if not nicer) than Virgin 1st class. It is the same price, and they have lounge access with wi-fi (free), and they hang up your coats for you and deliver them to you before landing. United P.S. business class is pretty amazing. I will publish a TR of United P.S. business class soon, and you can compare the two side by side.

Thanks for your comment!

Hola Sfflyer123!

I really enjoy your video TRs... they are very well done and nicely presented with all the essentials I am looking for in a TR.

VX seems to offer a very nice product, the seats look awesome and the food is very well presented and according to you tasted nice as well, so what else can you ask for?

On the other hand, they should consider looking at the little details to offer a more competitive service.

Salut!

Nice video covering a lot of the detail.

Reminds me of my trip with VX from LAX-SFO. I got chance to upgrade to F, which I did. Like you I could not understand the lack of a lounge. Not really good enough in my opinion. Even if they gave F passengers, say a $10 voucher to spend on food/drink in the airport that would be a touch more acceptable.

Anyway, the cabin is modern looking along with the airlines general image, but it looks like a few of the smaller/personal touches are missing.

I would use them again.

Thanks for this video report.

Nice trip report, as usual. Love all your videos on youtube.

It's a shame that VX doesn't have their own lounge, I mean, at least a small corner at the terminal with a few snacks and drinks would do. As shown on the video, T2 definitely looks great, reminds me of JetBlue's home in JFK, terminal 5. Although I've heard some complaints about not having any "cheaper" options for dinner such as fast food restaurants for the kids.

BTW was the WiFi free for F class passengers? Their IFE from my experience is probably the best in the US (domestic) I've also seen Source Code, great movie. I'm glad that you enjoyed your meal on VX, looks delicious like you said. The salt and pepper shaker was definitely interesting! I would keep it  

Thanks for sharing! Looking forward for more.

Good report! Thanks for sharing another video with us, sfflyer123!

Looks like you had a good flight with Virgin America. I'm impressed with the F class seat, mood lighting, and the avod. The food looks very tasty and unique; quite different from the staple First dishes AA and Delta offers, i.e., (pasta, or chicken salad, etc ...)

Looking forward to your return trip!

Thanks very much. Yes, I must agree that the food creativity on virgin was significantly better than your "traditional American" fare on many domestic carriers. It was a little more "gourmet" than most places. I guess it fits right in here in San Francisco!

Not sure if I like the video TR versus a regular TR format with photos but the final product was very nicely done! One comment though, you seem to get hung up on the hanging up of your coat. OK, OK, the lack of a lounge to separate you from the riff-raff I can understand but hanging up a coat? Is that really hugely important to the typical business flier? Maybe it is important to you, but I cannot believe that most people would consider VX a "step behind" UA's PS because of that miscue. I'm not trying to provoke an argument, just saying that it struck me as (dare I say) whining. It will also be interesting to see what becomes of PS as the merger continues to progress.

I didn't have much luck with that when I went through SFO. I went to the Clubhouse and presented my boarding pass for the next flight. I got my wallet to pay for the lounge pass, but the ladies at the desk said that they couldn't allow me in since VX wasn't under the same umbrella as VS. It may have been that they were unaware of VX access to the Clubhouse, or perhaps the airline needs to update its webpage. Either way, it wasn't a make-or-break situation, so I didn't press the issue. If VX passengers can be allowed in, it may be worth pressing the issue if you really want in.

The coat was supposed to be a point of humor. Unfortunately, some people took that seriously, as if I were some entitled business traveler. The reality of it is that I really couldn't care less about hanging up a coat; I always shove my coat in the overhead bin when I travel in economy (which is how I usually travel). I thought I could make it sound funny that I was a fool holding my coat, but I guess it didn't work so well!

I'm a great booster of Virgin America, even though I have only done one roundtrip SFO-LAX on them. I did splurge for F, and was liberally plied with their sparking wine ('Karma'), which was actually quite good. We were served a fruit and cheese plate, and while not exactly huge, it was populated with high quality cheese and some gourmet crackers that were out of this world.

The Recaro seats at 55" pitch were fun to sample for the hours' flight, and I can't wait to try a transcon, as you have done. The mood lighting is a nice touch as well. Virgin America is one of the few North American carriers with a sense of style and 'show' in their product, as opposed to the bluegrey leather and colorless bulkheads we see so much on legacy carriers these days.

I can't wait to get back on Virgin America.

FYI: VX uses the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse in San Francisco for their F passengers BUT the catch is that it costs $35 extra. (http://www.virginamerica.com/travel/airport-lounge.html)
