    It does seem unfair I agree and it's only certain VH customers as well (Florida, Carribbean and I think one other place) :( I wonder if they will take people on the day if they are not very busy? :unsure:

    least you folks have a v.lounge. In Manchester we have wind up planes, a leaky shack in which to wait and a 5 mile trek on foot to the plane

    When you think about it, it makes no sense. Either you are a customer of Virgin or you're not. Seems silly to me.

    But Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Holidays are seperate entities. You book with VH you get to use the lounge. If everyone who booked with "Virgin" used the lounge it would be as big as the terminal.

    So it would be Virgin Gatwick instead of London Gatwick?

    Well no it's not QUITE that bad..... in that there's no lounge but the terminal building isn't leaky (much) :lol:

    We dont have to walk to the plane, there are busses and then you walk up a ramp thing

    The planes are the old ones that have finished down south so what, 20 odd year old 747s? obviously with the oldest entertainment systems etc.

    The manchester virgin planes have what estate agents would call "rustic charm featuring extremely bijou accommodations"
