    Can't really help you with this one! All I can say is we've used VA every time and they have been fine every time. I've nothing to compare them with.

    I've mentioned this before, I think, so please forgive the repetition if you've already read it, but BA 'officially' allow you to bring one piece of hand luggage, plus a personal item such as a makeup case or laptop or camera bag.

    Last time I checked, they didn't weigh your main piece of hand baggage too, which is great considering how heavy an empty travel case is - even the light ones.

    I never use BA because they always go on strike just as the holiday seasons start. I won't be held to ransom. So stuff them.

    I've never flown to Orlando always gone to other airports and BA win every time. Safety is my number one concern and it's BAs too. I have had several bad experiences with VA and to be honest I wouldn't fly with them again unless it was a lot cheaper. American airlines would be my second choice followed by Delta

    are you saying VA dont take safety seriously?

    also where do you book you VA flights from, direct or a third party?

    As a customer I don't think the cabin crew take it as seriously as BA
    The VA flights I have taken have been booked both 3rd party and direct, why? They have been new York, Washington dc and Miami.
