    Postings by VA staff were leaked from Facebook yesterday.

    It seems they also made nasty comments about passengers too.

    Well that was intelligent of them. Did they think no one would notice?

    Ew why do you think they had to mention this

    He also reassured passengers that "very high standards of hygiene" were maintained on its aircraft.

    Sounds like unhappy staff members to me. I do know that when they are busy they miss things though. One year when we got our bags out of the hold above one of them was covered in sick :sick007: When the plane was cleaned they had obviously missed a sick bag that had been put up there.

    The staff couldn't apologise enough, we were given vouchers and told to write in to CS and they would pay for new bags. Needless to say we always check now









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    i know someone who worked for them in cabin crew selection and she left despite getting 9 free flights per year and other perks they treated them so badly.

    virgin do not need this now as they have the majority of their business in long haul and are in a very precarious position.
