What is NOT good is the fact that the "improvements" seem to include charging for beauty treatments! :eek::eek:

Yeah, I followed the links on the virgin atlantic website and found the prices. There were only a couple of simple treatments that were complementary and the rest chargable.

What actually is complementary now apart from being able to sit down? :(

Hi all,
Sorry no piccies. It was really manic in there yesterday. But I can report :)
The lounge looks much better and way more open now. Nice and stylish. The entrance is now on the shop side rather than down the hallway but its not very well signposted and took us a while to find. The check in agent had told us the entrance was the same :confused3
The spa is WONDERFUL! Of course this is coming from a woman who could spend half her life in spas but it is really a great and much improved experience. From the cowshed menu all the complimentary treatments are at least the equivilent to what they offered before and the prices for the others are very reasonable. Also please note that if you choose to pay for a treament INSTEAD of accepting a complimentary one you get a 30% discount. Made my thai foot massage 21 from 30 and worth every penny. Please also note they only accept cards, no cash.
Steve Ridgeway opened the lounge and wandered around talking to everyone. Really nice guy. Press were EVERYWHERE and they had a band playing which was really nice. I got filmed having my treatment lol.
The food was pretty much the same as before and the service was about a million times better. I have a feeling that was soley because Mr Ridgeway was around.
They still have shoe shine, business center and now a games area with Guitar Hero and Wii.
Any other questions let me know. Sorry about the pics.
