Web the family sat on 61-63,A-C.
The drawings on the seat sketch is not true. It looks like they have more room between the window to the a seats but that is not true.
No on demand video all movies on a rolling schedule poor screen on 61,62,63 C seats.
Food small size same size for childrens food as adult. Plenty of booze just go back and ask for more. No Toy backpack as promised for children. That sucks.

Never flew Virgin before this flight but was glad that I did. Lots of movie selection and games too! I thought I was going to catch a nap while on the transatlantic from EWR-LHR. That never happened!
