Re The Escape, purely us, after using the Escape afore travelling UC we were not impressed, and even tho UC gave us complimentary entry we gave the Escape a wide swerve, opting to check in 70 mins pre-push back, heading straight to the departure lounge.

You'll notice a big difference in UC, basically unlimited legroom - the A330-300 has a seat width of 22", the 200 was refitted to 20". We can't take advantage of the lie flat bed as it's way too hard for us, but being able to recline with legs up, shoes off, ding dong

You can have coffee as and when you like, Virgin had a coffee machine in the galley and I'm guessing still will. Snacks are also available. Most importantly, you've paid for your seat so enjoy the service and journey The only downside, you will not want to go back to economy, something we haven't done since we began flying PE/UC.
Ive looked everywhere for info about the clubhouse but not much to be had. I might ask VA on their Facebook or Twitter. I will share anything I find out with my Dibb friends of course!


Edited to add : I asked VA on their Facebook if it would be open by August - here is what they said:

Hi Julie, thanks for getting in touch. Great to hear you're due to travel with us soon. I'm very sorry but due to the current circumstances, we don't have a definite date of when the Clubhouse is going to be open, I am sorry!

Im getting slightly concerned that UC travel might be as addictive as my favourite destination!

Edited at 10:56 PM. Reason: More info

changed our booking from Atlanta (this was my choice but I was outvoted by the family!) to Going to LA instead, cost no extra miles or cash or fees to change, but used 2 vouchers I though were expired (turns out not) still have another left to use too, valid until late summer 22!

our second trip here so going to be a road trip to cover PCH and probably a trip to Grand Canyon via Vegas(vegas not really our thing but will be stopover)

and either a start or finish with Disneyland/huntingdon beach for a few days

Looking forward to trying the New A350, booked 1A!.
