Our return flight was exceptionally good and the team Flying on Christmas Day in the past has been hit and miss, sometimes the staff are great other times grumpy. Christmas dinner at 38, In general a good flight, easy check in and quick service. Staff accommodating at both Heathrow and O.
On flight food and entertainment ok. Not the tallest person but found the seating a little cramped, but at the time of booking was far the cheapest direct flight. The day we flew for our Christmas holiday Dec 20, was the infamous day of the drone fiasco at Gatwick. Due to everything being locked down at the airport our inbound flight had been diverted to Heathrow. Virgin Atlantic handled everything with the utmost professionalism. They were constantly announcing updates. My first experience of Virgin was on the 19th December flying from Manchester UK, the flight was delayed for 2 hours 45 mins due to cargo hold problem all the time we were sat in our seats on the plane then went through 7.
Early arrival at Heathrow, with overnight opportunity to sleep makes this the almost perfect trip. Food choice was fine, but as midnight local in HK you are not usually that hungry. We have been flying with virgin for 14 years and usually go economy but we had enough air miles to use for premium one way. Flights Vacation Rentals Restaurants Things to do.
