So after my flight from WICK I had a few hours to kill before my Little Red flight back to Heathrow.
I popped into the Servisair Lounge using my Priority Pass, and like most Servisair lounges, kind of wish I hadn't.
The staff were friendly enough but they are soulless places with no sense or attempt to make them feel special.
Not being a diva here, but a decent lounge shouldn't be difficult. Take a look at No.1 Lounge (even they don't get it right all the time but are far superior). Rant over.
The view outside was of the multi story car park…
But first. Hooray Little Red, and thank you!
It was a dreich day in Edinburgh.
There wasn't a great deal to do except drink T&G's so I did that most of the afternoon.
Off to a very crowded Gate 6, and priority boarding in place. UC/PE/Gold Card and all connecting flight passengers could board first. Fair enough. I like the idea that if I have a connecting flight to catch I can get on board and settled in.
On all of my flights now I have noted that Little Red flights have boarded from the back rows to the front and vacated front to back. Not sure if it makes it quicker - it certainly feels quicker. And it's quite nicely balanced - if you get to board first you disembark last. Or board last and disembark first.
Super friendly crew and that Virgin purple lighting.
I've marked Entertainment as good as there was a selection of newspapers at the gate including The Scotsman, The Times and the usual Daily Mail.
Flying over the clouds…
A G&T for the flight… with a tiny packet of Tyrell's Plane Crisps.
Later, Love Hearts!
I let everyone else disembark first as I wanted a pic of the cabin, but unfortunately could only manage a couple of rows.
London looked wet and windy.
I really like Terminal 1. It doesn't feel like you are in one of the busiest airports in the world, and I mean that in a good way.
I wish Little Red every success. They seem to be doing everything right.
The crew are brilliant, and I don't mean that they make you feel like they are your best friend or doing handstands etc. but there's just something very quietly reassuring about how they are handling these flights. They are a real credit to Virgin.

Little Red - a new departure for Virgin Atlantic. Flights are operated by Aer Lingus, but all branding, uniforms etc. are Virgin Atlantic.
