We`re thinking of taking advantage of the current Virgin offers on Upper Class (mid way between Business and First ? ) fares to Sydney.
One of the things that`s putting us off is my wife and I are travelling as a couple and the Upper Class seats / seating layout doesn`t seem right for couples travelling together. For example you can`t lower the privacy screens round your seat, so effectively you`d be sitting on your own for 4 long haul flights, even eating alone !
Has anyone else had any experiences of this and what did they think ?
Surely a large percentage of travellers, certainly leisure travellers, would be couples, so why did Virgin want a seat layout which is is so unsuitable for them ? That said, I know a few couples who wouldn`t mind too much being out of the way of their wife (or hubby) for 4 long haul flights, but we`re not one of them. Not yet anyway !
Also, what`s the view like out of the window when your seat is aligned at 45 degrees to it ? ! ?Edited: 31 August 2011, 10:06
