    two thoughts on this....

    1) its GREAT because I can hardly get a laptop + a nice camera in the 6kg limit
    2) I wonder if they'll start really weighing the carry ons and being strict about it

    Fantastic news Keith. Woohoo!! Loads more space for my Ghirardelli chocolates and goodies from the malls. Since I usually buy loads of chocolate squares and tubs of their chocolate drops, it is a nightmare getting them home without having to put them in our suitcases.

    At last Virgin are changing things in favour of their customers I can see a problem getting everything in the overhead lockers if everyone takes the maximum though

    Oh and Keith if you want your own locker in December then don't reserve seats 8 or earlier as 7 and 6 don't have their own locker space, so people tend to try and bung everything into 8 or the cabin crew put it in the wardrobe.

    We always have 9 a and k, we like to sit opposite each other and they are far enough from the bar so that you aren't overly bothered if lots of people stand there.

    ooo ok thanks!

    Interestingly from manchester at the moment the first flight at the moment is an a330 without UC and the later one is a 747 with.

    In December we seem to be on the earlier flight but in UC so I dont know if they're going to swap them round or if the a330s will have uc by that point
