Same here, and it looks like we’re on different dates. At least our return is also 3 hours later so we’re not losing time overall. It will probably work out better for us because we won’t need to be up at 4am!

Yes our return is later too. We will have more time to get something to eat before leaving Glasgow as I don't fancy any of the meals on plane. Hopefully the menu will change, I wish we could choose our dinner like you can with jet2

Only if the change is major so do get the choice of accepting the change or a full refund - nothing in between

The difference at the moment between the 2 times for us is about £1100.00.

I understand that it is not good to send a flight out only half full but when someone has chosen a flight and the price difference is this much then I thought they would’ve giv n you the difference back.

Fingers crossed it doesn’t happen :D

Not even just out of season. We booked direct flights with Virgin in July. They pulled the only flight that day (Thursday) and put us on a Friday flight! Lost a full day/night!

That’s a good point, hopefully I can do an early lunch for my allergy kid and avoid the drama of unsuitable plane food.

Just bringing this back with a question... VA have now changed my return flight as well, and I am now due to land at LGW at 9.25am instead of 7.10am.
The problem is, my car park (Purple Parking) is only booked until 9.30am! Has anyone experienced an issue with returning to this car park later than stated but the same day? I did try to call them but it just rang and rang!

Send them an email with the flight change

They will be used to this happening all the time but tell them in an email so you have proof
