My first Dreamliner trip, that i had been looking forward to with Boeing's hype that it was designed to be passenger friendly. I was enticed by Virgin's low economy fare to connect with BA all the way to India. What a mistake! The seats are cramped ( I have travelled internationally for 50+ years). The food was sub-par; the breakfast was a token croissant with a smidgen of "cheese?".
Never take a window seat. the arm rest against the window does not lift up; prevents you from getting that extra hip room at the window; I got a two day lower back pain from being immobilized for this 10 hr flight. I recommend an aisle seat and annoy everyone by getting up and walking around often.
the seat cushion had no give. (they should replace them every 6 months); the plane floor was filthy at the end of the flight because passengers could not pick up anything that fell on the floor during flight (no room to bend down to retrieve anything)
Message to Virgin : use a 2-4-2 seating for flights longer than 4 hours!!
