don't rate the option of the A330 -200 as even a short term replacement for 747 or 787 , We sat in 30A and 30C on overnight flight back from Barbados average legroom at best , horrendous when passenger in front reclines , you just feel pinned in
Boarding was a joke just seemed chaos , people struggling for overhead locker space around us
Anything behind row 30 be prepared to have people standing waiting for the toilets , a very cramped area
If crew attempt to pass with a trolley and people are standing in this area the fun really starts, poorly laid out
Food and drink usual virgin standed , no problem with that
Lot of problems with the VERA system , screens not working , handing out a few laptops to help with issue, asking people to try to use there own earphones as so many not working or simply did not have enough on board.
On the whole i would rate the plane as a poor opton on this route and as a regular user if these planes are to be used in future i think i will look at other route carriers

Having travelled this route with Virgin quite a few times and always been impressed with their UC product I really wasn't impressed with the old Air Berlin seats. They felt very narrow, the screen was quite a way in front, fixed and was operated by a control unit with a finicky roller pad to highlight selections. One bonus that was nice is the massage facility incorporated in the seat and excellent recline giving more options than the usual virgin UC seats. They are flat bed and just slide into position. The interior is drab and grey and the overall feeling is quite claustrophobic.
Thankfully we were told the interiors are to be refurbed about October time, don;t think I will be travelling with them to Barbados in the A300-200 until then.
Cabin crew didn't have much room either for preparing refreshments.

I was aware this is a “reduced” leg room exit seat, but perhaps hadn’t realised how reduced it was when the door is closed. You have to sit with your legs at an angle as the aircraft doors mechanics stick out where you would normally stretch your legs. The overhead lockers are small and space is at a premium, especially as being in this seat, everything has to be stored for take off and landing. We also have 14C, where the leg room was uninterrupted and great. Table is a faff, but works. This was one of the ex Berlin aircraft Virgin are using and still awaiting to be updated by them.

Okay, to be honest I have flown with Virgin on numerous occasions and must say this flight was a nightmare!
Whilst my husband in 36H could sit with X-tra legroom, I was stuck (literally stuck) sat for over 8hrs at an angle with half of my legroom due to the Slide Box taking up that space!
These seats cost me an extra £240 pounds, there is no mention of even in the plan that legroom is impaired!
Come on Virgin, you can do better than this, let people know if the xtra legroom is not so!
I must admit I am dreading my flight back on Sunday after three and a half weeks in St. Vincent!

My husband and I usually book Premium Economy purely for the comfort factor in terms of the type of seats and leg room. Hubby is over 6ft. Due to ridiculous pricing of Premium this time round we booked 2 economy delight seats.. i found the leg room ok but hubby was a little snug. Seats felt a little hard so much shifting to get comfortable. The old air Berlin plane refurbished but not very well. The glue to the covering of the seat in front of me was becoming unstuck. Overall i would still prefer Premium. But if cost is a factor next time will buy economy delight.

My Husband is recovering from a cancer operation and ended up with a bladder and prostrate removal. We requested assistance and we were told they would try and assist us. We were happy with the seat they allocated us, I was disappointed not having a window and isle seat and could not see out of the window.We were very cold in this bulkhead seat a member of your team was concerned and kindly bought us a duvet cover, and my thanks to virgin please can we have them on return journey on 8th October VS 110 RSW to MAN would prefer a window and isle bulk head seat as my husband needs attention.

The extra $69 I paid for this seat was well worth it. The only hassle was the signing up. They made me pay before I could see any seats that were available. I moved from a coveted window seat in regular economy to this middle seat in the middle section of 4 seats. With that said, it was surprisingly commodious, and I’m only 5 ft 1 in tall and it felt very spacious to me. The fellow next to me was about 6 ft 2 in but seemed very comfy too. Definitely worth the extra cost; just wish it was easier to obtain!

Extremely disappointed with these old A330-200 aircraft. Legroom is appalling and the seats are very hard, uncomfortable and tatty. Flown this route on two previous occasions with virgin on 747-400 and A330-300 Aircraft, both provided a considerably enhanced experience in terms of comfort and service. Surely there were better leasing options available for virgin to ensure the usual virgin experience is maintained on alternative aircraft. The food service was also very poor (normally excellent). Get it sorted virgin or customers will start to look elsewhere!

VIrgin A330 200 are cheap retro fitted Air Berlin aircraft.
The economy seats are uncomfortable shell type, but worse, are at 30” pitch.
Virgin have become a budget airline! Even the food has shrunk, the meal tray is smaller than A4 now.
A horrid flight, these aircraft are to be avoided at all cost.
What seatmaestro plans don’t show is there are 24, “Economy Delight” seats at 34” but for an extra payment. These are tolerable.

Appalling, this is not a standard to which you expect of virgin Atlantic. The seats are old and really tatty, the fabric itself looks dirty. The fabric is blue which I assume is from its previous carrier. The IFE was ok, but two different headsets were broken. The seats were all uncomfortable. The aircraft had major problems and we were delayed hours while engineers battled to get us airworthy.
