I think that upgrade was money well-spent. Next year I'm considering Virgin economy only if I can get the extra legroom seats. I need to pay for 6 seats ..... In August too ...... So that's changed my 'never again' vow for transatlantic economy

It's £50 for the transatlantic leg each way, and a further £30 for the domestic legs, totalling £160 each - which is almost half the cost of the flight...And it's just a slightly bigger seat, it's still "economy" If it were £50 all in, I'd consider it but probably still wouldn't in all honesty...

Have done premium, and would never pay for it personally but nice as a freebie

Also what are you drinking for £12.50 a drink?! (And is it worth it?) We tend to stick around the £3-5 mark for drinks so that's 10+ drinks on one transatlantic leg alone, or 30-50 drinks if we upgrade both ways fully..! Each!

I see my DH has answered for me lol!
In all fairness we are eating at Disney restaurants every night and so their cocktails are around the $12 for the light up specials ( which are so pretty I just have to have) I really enjoy the planet Hollywood cocktails and so we stop by a few nights a wk just at the bar,and the drink at the Polly that comes in the pineapple " amazing"

And yes my drink of choice is champagne/champagne cocktails so they do run a little more....... " eek"

Drink prices are crazy in Disney. Where I don't mind paying for a little extra comfort on a flight I do moan about what I spend on drinks. Karen enjoys the Grey Goose slush in France, Epcot, around $10.
We do 1 or 2 Drink around the World evenings, they cost around $80-90/visit. Even a beer is $8+ now.
