This is my first trip report so let’s see how it goes…
Hi all 👋 hope you all had a great Christmas and a happy new year today I would like to tell you about my trip on Virgins 787.
So me and my family wanted to take a trip to London and on to France on the EUROSTAR to celebrate my mom getting her masters degree and I suggested we take Virgins 787 to London and so we did.
The flights details:
Flight number was VS8
Class was Premium Economy
Departure time 5:15
Aircraft: G-VFAN 1.6 years old
We boarded our flight and were guided to our seat I had seat 22K it is a window seat and the second row of Premium Eco seats. Our take off time was around 6:15 as the gate next to us had an emergency. Once we were all settled in the crew came around with the menus for that nights dinner. The food was delicious and way better then expected for airline food. Shortly after dinner ended and the trays were collected the lights were slowly dimmed to allow passengers to sleep. Through out the flight we received plenty of care and attention from the crew every half hour they brought drinks around so everyone stayed hydrated throughout the flight. Once we reached Colorado the winds started to get bad Turbulence hit and the aircraft shook. But that didn’t last to long only about an hour. Through the flight I enjoyed the amazing IFE system which worked really well nd automatically turned itself off if you were asleep. Once the sun rose and most if not all the passengers were awake they served a light breakfast of yoghurt, tea or coffee, juice, and a warmed pastry. Once breakfast was completed we were informed that we would have to go into a holding pattern over Heathrow as there were so many flights around. Once we hit the ground we gathered our luggage after customs and head for our ride pickup.

Part 2 (Return Trip)
Sorry for not adding this when I got back I was so tired. Anyways…
The return was excellent! Same experience maybe even a little better then the flight there! Right after takeoff the flight attendants tried serving drinks but we hit some bad turbulence so they had to stop. Then they tried again and the same thing happened. Then again and again. Finally about an 1 1/2 hour in we got drinks (by this time I was really thirsty) I had just a water because I am a boring person. Then we were served Lunch/Dinner around 5 hours in. At the 8 hour mark we were served Tea Time where every person in Premium Economy received a warm scone, tea, sugar, cream, clotted cream (for the scone), a sandwich, and Water. Of course I ate the whole thing and it was delicious! Shortly after I had a massive headache which made me feel like my head was about to explode but the FA was so nice they made sure I was ok and if I needed an aspirin.
Finally the pics!
