    I haven't but I know someone who has

    I think Isafari went on this when she flew over this month. She is on occasionally whilst she is away, so she might be able to give you more information, if not I'm sure she will when she comes home.

    and we loved the experience.
    You can tell immediately that the plane isn't as wide when you get on and the isles are about 25% narrower too...and of course you have 2 engines not four.

    However, the entertainment system is so cool. No more having to watch movies at a particular time as you start/pause and stop them at a time to suit yourself. Games are cool too. You also get 4 versions of the skymap to watch.
    Unless you actually want to play the games you don't need to use the handset - just tap the buttons next to the screen.

    One big bonus - the restrooms are soooooo much bigger.

    Seats were comfy and the blankets we got weren't scratchy

    Having sets of two seats all the way up both sides of the plane is a bonus for us being a couple.

    only 2 engines?! quite liked having 4!

    are the window seats all in sets of 2 now then? makes it a bit hard for a family of 3 to get a window seat if they are - although by the time we go again who knows how many there will be in our party!

    Here's a link to the seating chart for the Virgin A330-300.

    Nothing worse than those teensy weensy bathrooms. I hate them with a passion especially when you hit turbulance while in there.

    I'm one of those people who has to clean the toilet before use, I clean every bit of it then have to sanitise and wash my hands then I can go.... what a performance, and don't get me started on the state of the floor Some guys just couldn't aim straight if their bliddy lives depended on it... disgusting....

    I may get some curious looks when I go in fully armed with sani wipes, it used to be a whole bottle of spray but that liquid thing killed that idea off. So now it's a big pack of wipes. Tip: You need to be behind me in the line for the bathroom because I can guarantee you that it will be spotless after me!

    The taps get wiped, the door handle and the door lock and the floor and anything else I may have to touch. OCD? Nah not much! LOL!

    I really want those hospital shoe covers for next time, anyone know where I can get some from...apart from the hospital that is... lol. And YES I would put them on.... you kidding me!

    Didn't need one. It was a domestic flight!

    How it got through TSA security is another matter.
