This was a lesson in what can go wrong with a family holiday and the virtue of using a good agent such as DialAFlight. Martin and Vincent were superb at handling the damage caused by circumstances beyond their control. WELL DONE and thank you.

Both flights were good. Virgin Atlantic planes were virtually new 787-9, so seats comfortable, TV screens a good size and I think we had more leg room. Altogether VERY satisfactory.
