    Hello,

    We missed the bulk head seats for our flight to Orlando :( Looks like it was released earlier than expected. We decided to go for row 19 D and E as there is no one behind us and it nice to recline our seat back without worrying about anyone.

    Stephen has asked if the wall behind would stop this?

    Has anyone sat this row and what it is like?

    yeah I had the same happen. I'm getting seriously annoyed with virgin opening up the seating whenever they feel like it :(

    Anyway, we did 19a/b and the wall behind us didn't stop us reclining. Whether it was technically a full recline or not I don't know, but it wasn't a problem

    So annoying is it?! Fab we were worried! Looking forward to it now! Also it nearer to the exit so hopefully can get off quicker!

    If you're lucky you are one of the first off. Don't worry they're great seats, we use them rather than upstairs PE as you are more probably likely to get off first. We even beat the UC people.

    I don't think even Virgin know what's happening with these seats.

    We have booked four together just in front of the stewards station thing. Row 46?

    We were thinking about the bubble and the famous "other forum" claimed row but that was booked before you could even blink.

    The problem with the bubble now is that the best seats that were in PE are now economy seats :( You are much better sitting downstairs in PE now.

    Totally agree with that Wendy, I wouldn't go upstairs now and we always used to use the 2 back seats (that have apparently been claimed by another forum, despite the fact we had been using them for about 10 years!)

    Yup, they have. Jess is registered on that other forum and they get really upset if someone who isn't a regular poster gets the seats. They are referred to as 'our' seats.

    Thing is everyone is going to get there, it's just that some maybe waiting a little longer than others.

    What does make me laugh is those who are up and getting their bags out the locker just as the plane touches down despite being told to remain seated.

    Perhaps I should start a thread on pet hates while on holiday lol
