Disappointed, paid for Premium Economy, cabin looks like it is 10 years past needing a refit. Originally I was booked a seat next to the toilet which I changed for a seat upstairs. Side locker storage was handy. The seats are not very wide, and for some ridiculous reason someone thought it would be a good idea to put the earphone socket on the inside edge of the seat armrest, which dug into my leg for most of the trip and ended up breaking my earphone cable as I accidentally knocked it when I moved. The recline is poor, the seats were not very comfortable. The movies were also quite dated with most of them already having made it to the TV never mind DVD release. I made the mistake of a bulkhead seat on my return journey which housed the toilet. That meant minimal legroom as a result and plenty of people constantly hovering around me waiting for the toilet. Choose your seat and airline with care! Virgin really need to improve as when you are paying premium ticket prices you expect something a bit better than what they have on offer currently with these old planes.
