Still empty!!??

We checked in with Virgin twilight last night, 5th. Very quiet, straight through. This morning we passed the check in desk, 10 people at desks. Now sat in the V room enjoying breakfast and chilling. Flight leaves at 10.40. Will it be empty or will there be a mad rush to fill it?
Whatever happens we are on our way to the Magic!
Happy holidays one and all.

A lot of planes go half empty at this time of year. Thomsons have flights going this weekend for £198, enjoy your trip.

Have a magical time. Looks like you will be able to spread out on the flight.

Our BA flight out on 7th December was about 3/4 full, we managed to get lots of room to spread out, whole rows to ourselves. Coming back yesterday it was much busier, but we were able to upgrade as there were seats available. Actually, our last day, Friday, was very busy in the parks, seemed to be lots of college age kids, I guess they had just broken up for Christmas.
