    Has anyone ever used it? It is worth it?

    I know that if you are booked with Virgin Holidays you get it free, but you can pay to use it if you are just flying with Virgin.

    I know that you have to pay extra for alcohol but I'm not one for having alcohol before flying, the 6 year old is sometimes partial to a wee dram but less said about that the better.

    Also is the security fast track worth paying for?

    interesting questions indeed!

    We were invited to have a look free in May and it's very nice! staff very pleasant, facilities all nice including nice snacks and food :) Is it worth paying for WELL each to their own tbh, it's one of the better lounges that's for sure but for 20 a head, for me, it's an expensive luxury. Nice enough start to the holiday though :)

    I don't believe it's free with virgin holidays unless they're running an offer at the moment and in THEORY the only people who can book it at all are those on virgin holidays who've booked a package including accommodation.. here's what the booking form says:-

    Please note: To book your v-room pass, you must have a package booking with Virgin Holidays including accommodation to Florida, the Caribbean or Las Vegas. The v-room is exclusively for customers of Virgin Holidays as detailed above. Sadly we're unable to accept bookings from Travel City direct customers, customers booked with other tour operators or customers with a flight only booking with Virgin Atlantic.


    Now the security fast track, do you mean the one you get if you travel upper class virgin? If so, I didn't know you could pay for it, but yeah I thought it was really fast and nice. I probably WOULD pay for that if not doing upper class anyway.

    I can see this on Manchester airports page " In a rush to start your holiday? Pre-Book FastTrack now, just 3.50 per person!

    FastTrack is a new dedicated channel to enable you to fly through security and reach the departure lounge more quickly. It is now available to pre-book for all departures."

    hmmm I dont know if thats the same thing as the upper class lane or not :/

    Thanks petal. Someone who has booked virgin holidays told me they got it free, but then again I don't know whether she got a special deal or she's just trying to make me feel inferior, which is often the case.

    The security pass was the one that you can buy through Manchester airport.

    yeah too true for sure

    to be honest, in the many years I've used Manchester airport, I can only remember one time when the queue through security was as long as 30mins. Since they've moved it and revamped it, especially in T2, it's been walk straight through with no delay whatsoever! of course 3.50 each isnt much to spend just to be sure :)

    Hi we used premium security lane at Gatwick and it was very pleasant and 'feel' much quicker maybe it an illusion but there are quite a few staff.

    We would do this again.
