I have taken VS
in October 1985 EWR
, May 1987 (LHR
) and Dec 1995 (EWR
), all on 747's. I remember my first flight with VS
was on their first a/c, the 'Virgin Flyer' (scrapped out a few years ago). Last August, my then 17 year old neice flew VS EWR
on A-340's They were always a bit more fun to be flying with than BA
or the other majors and liked the little goodies packs even coach pax were given. Their competitive pricing, fun attitude and quality service has kept them in business and growing. They also have been a good influence on the airline industry around the world.
started when they took over the 'discount airline' slot for EWR
-UK flights (originally to LGW
, from BCal in 1984). Congrats to 21 years of service - now they can drink in the USA!
