July 2012 Virgin lgw-mco

Hi all, .

We went to Orlando last year,(except landed in Sanford), with Monarch and personally I found the aircraft antiquated and uncomfortable. This year we have booked Virgin and I am pleased that it has IFE seatback rather than the the mid aisle drop version of Monarch. Question is I have checked the website and know we will be flying 747-400 both ways and wondered will it be time enough for the refurbishment of the aircraft do you think. My understanding is that this refurb program will start in May so unsure whether this will be enough time for their 747 fleet to be completed or will we be stuck with the possibility of a possible broken IFE as seems to be getting more frequent. Also as cheese makes me sick and I am not a fan of sauces, should I bring on my own food or will I be safe. Thanks for any replies.

The 747 refit programme will be approaching half way by July this year ( Estimated completion date Oct 2012), so it really is 50/50 whether you'll be travelling on a refurb. 747-400

As for dietary requirements, these can be requested through "Manage my Booking". You can request low salt, low fat meals etc, but i would bring something more suited to your needs as a backup.

Thanks Woffer

It turns out we are a a330-300 on the way out. I agree that the best thing to do would be grab something before boarding as even requesting a food type would probably be a disaster lol. As long as the IFE works, i'll be happy lol.
