ne jamais voler avec Virgin en partage avec une autre compagnie
The Airbus A330 used on this leg needs to be refurbished. The seats are all damaged, the in-seat power did not work (both 110v outlets and USB outlets) - the IFE screen looked like it was about 10 years old and would not stay unfolded, it just kept flopping down. At one point the flight attendant offered to "fetch some tape" to hold it in place for the flight. I felt very bad for her that she had been put in a position where this was even a reasonable suggestion to have to make.
Everything was great. Boarding was quick and easy. The food excellent.
A cause de l absence d enregistrement sur le vol virgin car opéré par delta........dernier rang dans l avion et tout le reste Kayak c fini
Personnel très agréable, avion propre et à l’heure, repas et snacks bons, proposition régulière de boissons
mon commentaire précédent fonctionne pour ce vol aussi
Tous les vols fonctionnent maintenant comme les arnaques low cost et c'est dommage. Une valise en soute coute une fortune, un centimetre de siege en plus est un vendu a un tarif de dingue. en prenant un billet sur virgin, géré par Delta, donc une vraie compagnie, nous ne pensions pas que meme demander a etre assis ensemble serait quelque part payant. en effet notre tarif ne nous permettait pas de s'enregistrer avant. donc une fois au guichet plus de sieges ensemble. dans l'avion ? fauteuil ridicule pour tasser plus de passager , comme dans les vols bas de gamme, pas de boisson avant le repas, mais des bouteilles de cristalline que meme les chauffeurs uber ont arreté de donner. Et c'est une canette de coca pour 3 passagers, ben oui on va pas vous filer la cannette quand meme. Pour un vole a 1200 balles c'est vraiment abusé
Accueil scandaleuse pour l’escale courte à Manchester
The movies and lighting did not work. Internet was available for a price. The airline should have compensated by paying for internets so a movie could be watched on my own device.
Horaires très bien respectés. Le vol du retour avait même 30 minutes d'avance !
Retard de l avion … Personnel peu aimable, nourriture infecte!
L avion à attendu Les passagers retardé à cause d’un contrôle aussi mal organisé que pas aimable à Manchester… Les animaux dans un abattoir sont mieux traités !
Un retard énorme dû aux contrôles à Manchester… Mais l’avion a attendu… c est sympa ! Vol très bien, nourriture infecte… annoncés uniquement en américain, on ne comprend rien. Les stewards devraient apprendre à parler distinctement, d autant si il y avait beaucoup d étrangers à bord…
Virgin flight attendants are the nicest/friendliest of all the airlines! Always prefer Virgin if there is a choice!
Not much elbow room. Food OK but not as good as Delta.
Presque 4h de retard, valise arrivée abîmée
Food absolutely terrible. Old plane. Needs retiring.
There was a lot of delay in getting a wheel chair. Single person doing for multiple people at Heathrow airport. Since you know in advance how many need wheel chair assistance, it would have been better if more wheel chairs and persons were available. Had to wait for almost an hour after landing after a 10:30 HR flight. The economy classic leg room was so bad, that it is very difficult for senior citizens to getup from seat, if the front seat passenger is reclining. The cabin crew were very very helpful in providing the special assistance. But for them the flight would have been very difficult.
Rien à dire pour un volt de petit trajet
Les fauteuils beaucoup trop étroit, pour une personne musclé. Aussi n'on les hôtesses on était formidable avec nous ,encore un grand merci
It was far too cold. Had to wear my coat and use the blanket. Very unpleasant.
Places réservées sur kayak avec option grande place . Non respecté. Confort abominable sur le vol retour. Vol de départ annulé cause Covid seulement quelques heures avant le départ. Incertitude pour un vol de replacement, finalement obtenu 12 heures après . Merci kayak: plus jamais chez vous.
Personnel très professionnelle et à l’écoute des besoins des passagers. Repas assez bien, surtout salade fraîche. Proposition de plats aux légumes pourrait améliorer l’expérience pour les personnes qui ne mangent pas de pâtes. Globalement tout s’est très bien passé.
Un enregistrement compliqué comme à l aller. Un passager n'avait pas d attribution du e ticket par la compagnie. Pas de check in en ligne possible . Personnel un peu désorganisé
Both outbound to JFK and inbound from Atlanta the food options were very poor for a ticket selling at £2,500 when we left. A330 seats were more comfortable than the new A350 and wider, crew were far better on the 330 also. The cabin being smaller felt safer given the current issues.
Was not let to board as the site failed to notify me if a friend purchased the ticket they need to be present at check in. Now we are not able to get a refund and paid for a ticket we will never use. Ridiculous rules as I fly from London and she lives in the US. How can she be present to show her card. $480 down the drain on top of that I had to purchase a ticket at the airport since I was already there
Points positifs : "This is the way to fly long haul."
Points négatifs : "Frustration is it is impossible to sleep during the breakfast service, but this is a problem for all airlines and Virgin is better than most."
Points positifs : "I like that there are multiple bathrooms onboard."
Points négatifs : "The rows are so narrow between seats that your roll on suitcase will not fit. You have no elbow room in your seat. People who live in England are very rude and would not let those of us seated in front of them to deplane. Too bad there isn’t someway to make people wait their turn."
Points positifs : "The crew was so kind and amazing. They definitely made our flight great!"
Points négatifs : "The entertainment wasn’t working for most of the flight. We only got about an hour and a half of entertainment"

Points positifs : "Karl was amazing! So helpful and sweet!"
Points négatifs : "Having the crew tell the guy behind me to plug in his ear phones to watch the video in his phone, rather than me after 20 minutes of noise."
Points négatifs : "Nothing"
Points positifs : "The boarding was fast."
Points négatifs : "For starters our cabin crew were the worst. The first service I had ask for a snack and no napkins. Dinner service was like just chucking food down in front of you. Then a stewardess looks me dead in the face and passed me for the drink service, then she said she thought I was asleep."
Points négatifs : "Unfortunately because the flight was delayed 2 times I was going to going to miss my connect flight to London. So I canceled my trip. I would appreciate a refund as I don’t understand what all the delays were about"
Points positifs : "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Points négatifs : "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"
Points positifs : "Smooth overall. Food mediocre but edible. (More than I could say for other airlnes.) Price also good."
Points négatifs : "Lots of flight schedules changes. Missed connecting flight as a result. No time left to deal with customs and baggage."
Points positifs : "Sharp good atention in counter"
Points positifs : "This flight is the best I’ve been on! Boarding was easy, the seats were comfortable, the film choice was excellent and I enjoyed everything I ate. I really felt I was being treated well by all the staff on board."
Points négatifs : "Nothing"
Points positifs : "food was great!"
Points positifs : "The flight felt so short, service was amazing, food was good. Great overall experience."
Points positifs : "We liked everything about our Virgin Atlantic flight. They could not have been more helpful from the time we got our Boarding passes in London until we got off the plane in Washington DC."
Points négatifs : "There was nothing to dislike on this part of our trip with Virgin Atlantic."
Points positifs : "The rear section of the plane had lots of room (empty seats), enough to lay down across three seats. Pleasant and helpful crew."
Points négatifs : "Minimal food available between departure and arrival meals; 10 hrs or so is a long time to get by on potato chips."
Points positifs : "Crew were great"
Points négatifs : "Uncomfortable to sit for eight hours"
Points positifs : "The crew was pleasant and attentive"
Points négatifs : "The entertainment system was not good. The touch screen was not calibrated and very hard to select and scroll through. The flight was over a hour late so we missed our connection. Got rebooked okay, but after traveling for 18 hours having to wait three extra hours was a drag."
Points positifs : "Fast boarding and nice staff. Food selection was ok"
Points négatifs : "One item missing from menu (unavailable). Issues with entertainment system. Bathrooms lacked moisturiser which is always very helpful on long flights where the air is dry"
Points positifs : "The crew and food were excellent. A little more space between seats would be appreciated. The entertainment equipment was not intuitive or easy to operate. I still feel the airline did a great job getting us to London on-time and a pleasant flight."
Points positifs : "Plane was about 30% full so plenty of room to stretch out. Friendly crew."
Points négatifs : "Flight left 50 minutes late because they'd lost the paperwork and had to get new copies.... not very professional! I can understand a delay due to weather or technical issues but losing paperwork shouldn't happen. The food portion was very small for an international flight."
Annulation sans proposition de solution
Parce que AA a mal fait son planning , pas de pilote . Il a fallu attendre un pilote puis un co pilote. On a décollé avec 1h40 de retard
Points positifs : "Super"
Points négatifs : "Super"
Points négatifs : "The 1st flight that I have not been cold for the entire flight. The attendants were very good and professional and kind. The Movie selection I felt did not have enough variety. The movies all seemed to be rated R or they were child type movies. Nothing much in between."
Points positifs : "The flight wasn’t over booked or full"
Points négatifs : "Nothing"
Points positifs : "Very nice crew"
Points négatifs : "It was freezing on the plane. The entertainment was not working."
Points négatifs : "I purchased 3 tickets and one was not used as the guest could not make the trip. The airline sold the seat that I already bought and paid full price for and I was not issued a refund or a credit for another flight. As fas as I see it, that seat was mine and shoould not have been fiilled by another indiviidual."
Points positifs : "Super nice crew, 787 plane, entertainment"
Points négatifs : "Seat comfort. Very little legroom"
Points négatifs : "The service, and the smile on employee’s faces. Rolling their eyes at people because we want to know why we’re being delayed is disrespectful"
Points positifs : "Plane was good, no delays and passport control in Charlotte, NC was quick."
Points négatifs : "I can’t believe we had to board this international flight by riding a bus to the plane and climbing the stairs into the plane."
Points positifs : "nothing since i was not able to make it on time"
Points négatifs : "Flight between fort myers and charlotte was stuck on the tarmac for more than 1h. I missed my connexion and was rebooked next day at 11am. I missed one full day of work. Next time, the flight could wait 15 o 20mn to allow passengers to reach the gate"
Points négatifs : "British Airways flight was carried by American Airlines. Planes were late, boarded one plane from the tarmac with no explanation, gate was changed 5 times without announcements. Will never fly American Airlines again!"
Points positifs : "Juste la rapidité du vol.les pilotes étaientt très bien autour du vol..."
Points négatifs : "Le vol a accusé un retard de une heure et en plus on n'a changé du lieu d'embarquement qui est passé du 77 au 75.il fallait que chaque voyageur se renseigne."

Points négatifs : "Ponctualité, service à la clientèle, accommoder pour changement de siège, courtoisie, service à bord, efficacité des mesures de sécurité"
Points négatifs : "Le déclassement en classe économique sans prévenir et une indemnisation impossible vol British opéré par American et donc les deux compagnie se renvoie la balle pour l’indemnisation (trois cents dollars par siège....) Plus jamais de voyage sur cette compagnie"
Points positifs : "L’equipage ne répondait pas à nos questions et le service laissait à désirer. Les sièges étaient confortables mais nous avons dû se faire réassigner parce qu’on nous avait séparés sur tous les vols."

Points positifs : "Some of the flight attendants were helpful, some were not. The movie selection was good."
Points négatifs : "The Food was not fully warmed, seats were uncomfortable. The boarding process did not seem organized."

Points positifs : "A couple crew members were great and attentive. A couple seemed like they would’ve rather been anywhere else."
Points négatifs : "This plane is so outdated. For such a long flight, these days entertainment is everything. The movies got interrupted every time an announcement was made (as in the screens went black and never came back on only the sound) this happened to 3 movies! The “wifi” completely useless."
Points négatifs : "Restes 1 heure dans l'avion sur la piste pour partir en retard du meme delai. Pour un vol de 90 minutes, decevant."
Points positifs : "A l'heure"
Points négatifs : "Sièges inconfortables. Assis trop haute."
Points positifs : "Tout s’est bien passer, c’etait facile."
Points négatifs : "La temperature durant le vol était mouvementé"

Points positifs : "Easy check in, helpful staff. Great seats and lovely in-flight amenities. Most of the food was really good and quite a bit was offered during the flight. Arrived early and staff was really helpful in getting through customs."
Points négatifs : "Weight limit on baggage was very strict. Boarding took a long time and seemed disorganized."
Points positifs : "Front area had nice amount of leg room. Back was so tight i couldnt even reach my bag under the seat in front of me."
Points négatifs : "$20 for wifi is a rip off!! Delta includes free wifi on international flights. Some prople need to work and paying for internet on an 8.5 hour trip was ridiculous.

Points positifs : "Rien"
Points négatifs : "Retard d’une heure"
Points positifs : "Boarding, crew, frequent refreshments."
Points négatifs : "Entertainment was virtually non-existent"

Points négatifs : "Older plane than on the way to Paris, did not like so much the food (except main course)"

Points négatifs : "Got selected for additional screening...not your fault, but would have preferred to Not be screened in the jetway as other pax boarded in same jetway behind us."
Points positifs : "The flight attendants, the service,, the movies, the food, the flight were great, the pilot was very smooth, the plane was very clean"
Points négatifs : "The boarding took forever, including because my wife was picked for extra security search... for an american citizen who lives in miami ?... Inside the plane during the whole flight was freezing Paying for suitcases and changing or selecting seats??? .. really?"
Points positifs : "La bonne ponctualité pour un vol intra US"
Points négatifs : "B757 dépourvu de système de divertissement à bord. Sûrement du au court trajet"
Points négatifs : "Aucune des télé ne fonctionne pendant la totalité du vol Biscuits food ridicules Le prix des bagages et la queue pour obtenir son ticket puis refaire la queue pour déposer bagages Double paiement bagages mémé en transit / inacceptable"
Points positifs : "tout le service en général."
Points négatifs : "rien"
Points positifs : "Good movie choices"
Points négatifs : "Very long flight"
Points négatifs : "notre vol a été retarde retarde!!au lieu de décoller comme prévu à 8h30 notre vol a été finalement annulé vers 23h30. On m'a relooké sur un vol pour LONDRES le lendemain à 19.h. Nous sommes restés plus de 24 h dans cet aéroport sans que nous soit proposé un hôtel. on nous a donné une couverture et un oreillé!!d'autre ont pu etre rebooké sur d'autre vols sur NY ou chicago le matin meme. Nous avons perdu une journée de travail mon époux et moi-meme. Lui a du annuler une formation impliquant 10 personnes qui venait de toute la France."
Points positifs : "The movie/tv system did not work despite a lot of time trying. Very disappointing when taking a long flight with a 10 year old."
Points positifs : "Amenities were about on par with other international airlines. The entertainment console was wonderful. The trip was more quickly than expected."
Points négatifs : "Boarding was a mess. We were there 2.5 hours before our flight and had to rush to make it on time due to the awful lines for the checking our bags and general disorganization of American Airlines. The staff on the plane missed our row when offering drinks near the end of the flight and were not careful about bumping elbows and shoulders as they frequented the aisle. Also couldn't sit by my family which was a huge bummer."
Points positifs : "The crew was ok"
Points négatifs : "It was 1:45 late . It was American Airline, we had extra passenger on board. It took them long time to figure it out. I was so rush, I barely made the connectiog flight and I only had carry on luggage."
Points positifs : "Food"
Points négatifs : "Delayed flight and missed connection flight to KC"
Points positifs : "The snacks and meals were decent, as far as plane food goes (although the “vegetables” with the chicken were pretty awful). Also the entertainment selection had a wide assortment of movies, but disappointing tv show selection."
Points négatifs : "The boarding process was a mess. Just a huddle of people, with no clear direction and no one enforcing lines or boarding groups. Also my husband and I weren’t seated together and when I tried to change it online, the entire flight showed as booked. However once on board there were clearly a number of empty seats."
Points positifs : "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Points négatifs : "There are no blue US custom declaration forms on the flight anymore. Many people cannot access the automatic kiosks, and I wish we could still have access to the forms while on the plane. It is stressful to have to do it after landing, with no real place to write. The flights were both fine, but the layover in DFW was a nightmare. Thankfully we landed 30 min early, but we only made our connection with a few minutes the spare. We ran through the airport, and had to ask many people if we could go ahead of them at the security. We didn't have time to use the bathroom and buy water/food. I understand this is not the airline's fault, but I would recommend extending the minimum connection time at this airport."
Points positifs : "I usually fly Air France but AA was terrific. Tasty food, pleasant crew, even the toilets were nicely maintained during the 9 hours flight. The only thing that AF does better is provide a full array of printed matter before boarding."
Points positifs : "Les hôtes étaient aimables"
Points négatifs : "Une barre tendre comme déjeuner! Ils auraient pu faire mieux"
