The ratings for this flight can be found in part 1
In my other post, I mentioned that the International Economy product is marvellous. Not only does it boast on of the biggest amounts of legroom, but it also provides great in-flight entertainment, food and beverages and overall service.
What I loved most was the friendliness of the cabin crew. Unfortunately, these days not many airlines in Australia are so polite, helping and energetic. A final touch which I thought was great is Virgin's new uniform. They used to have more of a strong and overpowering (read authoritative) attire but now it is quite different, 'loose' to put it best. It used to be very tight-fitting, but now the uniform is loose and this in turn is psychological. It gives the crew more of a relaxed and fresh image. This may all sound strange, but you'll, understand when you fly with them (which I highly recommend!)
And that my friends concludes this particular flight review. I cannot express how excited I was to touch down in Los Angeles with such a wonderful group of friends - who would share amazing experiences for the next 3 weeks - but also to walk out of the plane very happy with the flight, despite it being so long.
Arriving at Immigration was another experience altogether, but let's say that it is a little stressful (for every traveller). And boy, did it take forever!
Very soon, I will post the LOS ANGELES - BOSTON flight review which left many of us quite... oh, I guess I'll just explain it all in the post... :)
