    It is:

    As much as I enjoy things like olives and various exotic cheeses, I actually prefer a simple meal when flying. Also, I prefer not to drink so the wine choices would be wasted on me. I'll be happy with my vegetarian lasagne and water! :goodvibes

    A bacon roll for breakfast would be much better than that horrible, horrible, damp, smelly croissant thing they serve up now.

    I think I would still find it hard to pick from most of the mains :sad2: I don't eat fish or like mushrooms so I would have to get the beef thing and that doesn't sound too appealing either, I guess I was expecting a bit more choice - but I hope you enjoy it (I'd pay the money - if we could afford it - for the seats alone). I'd eat most of the other things though, can you get 2 desserts like on the cruise :rotfl:

    The flight back yesterday, the food was disgusting - I dont usually mind the food but it was gross yesterday. They seem to be cutting back and it is definitely not as good.

    Upper Class does seem appealing though:thumbsup2

    We flew back on Friday, trust me Obi don't have the chicken or the ''chocolate'' cheesecake. Disgusting doesn't even cover it. That said every steak i've had on-board resembles chared cardboard so I would not recommend that either.
    I personally will be taking prob a pret-a-manger on-board along with some sweeties as I just refuse to eat the garbage they call food.
    The suite itself however is fantastic and worth the price of a UC ticket all on its own which is pretty handy considering all the wonderfully little extras Virgin used to give their UC passengers have now vanished. :guilty:

    Mmmmm - I'll look forward to that - on the way out! I'll have to bring my own on the way back - that doesn't appeal at all.

    Sorry but that is a very expensive bacon sarnie

    I will stick with the economy grub especially as I only paid the taxes for the privilege and her indoors goes free. Shame you are on the Saturday flight. We go on the Friday otherwise I would have been more than happy to come into UC and make your acquaintance.
