We flew VA upper class yesterday from LAX to LHR on a 787 Dreamliner. The Virgin Clubhouse at LAX terminal 2 was nice. The food and drinks were a la carte and were fabulous and much better than most restaurants. The meals on the aircraft were good and so was the service. The seats were okay. I prefer the lie flat seats on Air Canada's Dreamliner Executive Class. For me the seats were okay, but I'm 5'10" and 163 lbs. For heavier people these seats will be a problem. You have to manually flip the seat to a lie flat configuration. If I were Virgin, I would have selected different seats. The cabin crew were fabulous. The entertainment system was just okay. The bar was a nice touch to the cabin. Considering the $5848 we paid for two return tickets ($2924 each fare) from LAX to GVA with the connection at LHR, it offered good value. We had too much food at dinner and skipped breakfast.
