Having always upgraded to Virgin Premium Economy, we decided this year to upgrade to Upper Class. It's just a different world. From the moment we arrived at checkin, to the Clubhouse lounge, to boarding ... it was certainly first class. The service of our cabin crew was absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and we were certainly looked after.
If I had to find something to grumble about anything in my experience of flying Upper Class, and this is definitely just me being picky, would be the overall layout of the cabin.
I booked two seats which I was led to believe would be facing each other, having been given this choice or one in front of the other. My husband and I decided that it wold be nicer to be able to converse if we were looking st each other rather than talking over the high sides of the Upper Class booth type seats. However, the design of the cabin means that 5G it not opposite 5K.
After a bit of seat swapping with another couple who were also slightly disappointed with the layout, we ended up sitting beside each other talking over the booth sides.
Apart from this ... we loved it and would highly recommend flying Virgin Upper Class if funds allow.
