"From the UK there used to be..." Airplanes Tip by arankine

Airplanes, Orlando: 35 reviews and 36 photos

From the UK there used to be only one way to fly and that was with Virgin Atlantic..however we feel that Virgin have mucked people who chose to fly from Manchester once too often, using substitute Charter Airlines and inferior older aircraft (B747-200's)..so we have decided to fly with British Airways again but on their London to Tampa route ( on a New Boeing 777), the flight was excellent and the 777 much better than the Boeing 747-200 they used to use as the last time we flew with BA was in 1997 and it was one of the worst Flight experiences we ever had, the staff wern't very accomadating, the food was dreadful, in flight movie shown on a torn screen, seats designed for a sardine packers outing, and thrown in for good measure they destroyed our case and belongings on the return journey, it took nearly 4 months to sort out and then we wern't properly compensated... but because Virgin Atlantic treat their Manchester passengers as inferior travellers we have decided to try the New look British Airways complete with cheap flights on the Manchester shuttle in their Club European seats to and from Gatwick....now we aim to try Delta Airlines with a flight from Machester to Atlanta.....I will report on that here in March 2003
Do not believe all the hype that you need to have a hire car if you are staying on the Internatinal drive area then you most definitely DONT..the 'I' Ride bus travels from Sea World to Beltz Factory Outlet ( the Whole Length of Internatinal Drive) they are every few minutes from around 0700 - 2300 7 days a week or 24/7 as they say in the USA) buy a 7 day pass which allows unlimited travel on I ride its very good and very cheap way of getting around, all the Major attractions such as Disney and Universal studions are served by other transportation companies which usally call at your hotel or very close by....see your holiday rep or guest services for more details about costs...Virgin do special deals for their clients on transportation ..
