Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

Flight to New York JFK from Geneva via London.

Welcome aboard the Virgin Atlantic 747.

First of all, the seats were quite comfortable, with enough space to stretch out my legs (I was in economy class). A bonus was the range of entertainment on the screens - loads of films and other programmes translated into French, a panoply of games and also the flight's journey tracked in detail - it was impossible to get bored during the flight.

As for the meals, for me they were fine - a drink with savoury or sweet snack just after take-off, followed around 1h30 later by lunch which was good but not exquisite (it's not a flying restaurant), and a sandwich and drink shortly before landing.

The take-off was very smooth and extremely prompt, and the cabin crew very friendly and efficient. Before the flight, the whole check-in process was fine too.

The arrival at JFK was a little early. In brief, this flight was to my liking: it was a very positive British experience, and I would strongly recommend this airline. .
