"Flight from London to New York" Newark Liberty International Tip by Jenniflower


We flew from Heathrow to Newark on Virgin Airlines.

We usually fly with them on international flights and can get decent discounts sometimes.

The flight was not too long, about half of that to South Africa. The crew were friendly and did not run out of food (as had happened to us previously!).

There was one downside to the flight, and this was due to the irritating people sitting in front of us.

A family of 4 from Germany were demanding of the crew, got up and down all the time, had their seats down at all times, and were generally painful. They complained about their seats and ended up getting better seats, so that the 2 left in front of us could lie down!

Besides them the flight was good though. Crew were friendly and personable.

I know a few people who literally go from London to New York for the weekend to go shopping, and I personally think this is a bit much, but they are happy to do it.
