we always tried to get those seats Terry, I think they have gone now and are part of the economy area I don't think I would go upstairs now if I used PEOriginally Posted by Slowhand, post: 299746
I remember back when the 747 was a new plane. The first one I ever flew on was on an Air France flight from Paris to the US. I flew First Class and the upstairs was a cocktail lounge for the First Class passengers. After takeoff they took us up there, mixed our first drink and then left regular size bottles of whatever you were drinking sitting at the bar and you could make your own drinks. When dinner was served they came up and got you and you went back to your regular seat for dinner.

oh how wonderful that sounds! The 747 is my favourite plane, I really don't like the A330s that Virgin have been buying insteadOriginally Posted by uscwest, post: 299755
I'd love just once to sit at a bar in upper class and chat the journey away
I VERY much miss premium economy in "the bubble" It's a huge blow that they've changed it
Basically you can purchase an extra seat, so hubby and I can have a row of three for the two of us. It starts from £99 and is £149 on the Orlando route.
Hubby and I are pooh shaped so having the extra seat space will make the flight a lot more comfortable, I always worry about being squished.
We are currently going to go for coming home,but I'm going to try to sell some stuff on eBay to do both ways
I guess all they're doing is saying ok, when you buy a seat from us it costs £150 to virgin and £400 in taxes... so if its an empty seat they mustn't have to pay taxes and virgin get the same money for the seat so they're fine. Clever really if that is how it works
