It is the newest plane in VS
's fleet. I've been on it 3 times, and everytime was better than the last. The V:Port AVOD IFE is fantastic IMHO. Over 50 movies to choose from on 9 inch screens, dozens upon dozens of ENTIRE albums to listen to from Bob Marley to Justin Timberlake, several radio stations, interactive map, tons of tv shows, just entertainment galore.
Crew has always been spectacular. I mentioned in another thread that the entire experience really makes you feel like flying is a true event, not just a way to get from point A to B. Most of the F/As are beautiful and very cheerful and pro. They are very laid back and you should not hesitate to talk to them in the back, they are very talkative.
If you like turbulence, sit in the back, because of it's length the 346 magnifies the turbulence in the back. If you dont, sit over the wing, slices through the bad stuff like butter. Its amazing what 20 rows will do!
The bathrooms are probably the best part. When you lock the door, blue lights come on, and you basically do your business in blue hehe. Its a trip.
All in all, a very clean aircraft as it's so new. Legroom could be improved, but that's something thats bad on most carriers.
Hope this helps. If you have any specifics dont hesitate to ask. Better to be prepared for a 12 hr flight than not!
Also, dont worry about your portable DVD player, if the IFE is out, they'll most likely provide you with one.
