British Airways vs Virgin Atlantic - Which is the better air

British Airways vs Virgin Atlantic - Which is the better air

Postby Redspan on Fri 05 Jul 2019, 5:23 am

BA flies the UK flag and Virgin is more of the maverick airline.

Perhaps you're old enough to remember Virgin Record stores and you're loyal to the Virgin brand because you admire Sir Richard Branson, the Virgin group of companies, or you just prefer the adverts and the uniforms of the cabin crew.

I personally never flown on Virgin so I can’t really comment though I have flown with BA a few times and I have had great experiences with them and best is you get excellent leg room. When I was younger and went plane watching with my Grandpa it was my fav plane to look out for I loved the black and white colours. I wasn’t mad keen when it became its colours now but it grew on me.

Are you talking about the "Red square" livery that BEA had in the 1960s (the same retro livery that BA have recently applied to A319 G-EUPJ)?

BA excellent legroom, you probably did not fly on a BA 777 - 300 then!

That really depends on how long your legs are, for all you know Euan might be "vertically challenged". :grin:
