Our plane was a beautiful new A330. I loved the stylish decor and business class bar. Virgin Atlantic went all out to outfit this plane and it really shows.
Hot meal served within 90 minutes of take-off.

Food was tasty.
Drinks service etc was less frequent and friendly compared to the outward leg. My theory is that crew is more tired when travelling back to their home hub.
Had a problem with earphone jack in one seat. Several FA's tried to fix it, and when they were unsuccessful they brought us a portable DVD player.
Premium Economy is one step above economy. Yet, you feel entirely different after a seven hour flight in comfier seats. Treated to Bucks Fixx, Champage, or Orange Juice once you are settled. Great service!
