Virgin Atlantic to LHR in economy - any opinions?

Wondering if anyone can give me any feedback regarding economy class on Virgin Atlantic, specifically JFK to LHR. The few reviews I find are a couple of years old and most reference Premium or Upper Class, but I'd like to hear from someone traveling in economy and more recently.

Thanks in advance.

Feedback regarding what? Virgin has an economy class and it is much the same as every other airlines economy class. I don't understand what it is you expect anyone to tell you other than that. C class on any airline is cattle class. That's what the C stands for.

C class is business class, not economy ... quite a difference from the conventional cattle class.

Aside from that, yes, VS economy class is similar to most other airlines.

I flew to LHR 2 years on Virgin Atlantic. Economy is no worse than most other airlines, and better than some. It's was a relatively quick flight, so it wasn't too bad, although I had another 16 hours to reach my final destination, Yangon.

virgin does a great job. from jfk-lhr is nearly 5.5 hours, very short. by the time you relax and settle in, it's nearly time to descend. be cognizant of how early you arrive to, you might get to lhr before 6am local time, very early! i prefer to arrive a little later, 7am-9am for example.

Their Premium Exonomy is a little better. Also, their daytime flights from the US east coast to London
Are so easy and rhen, no jet lag, at least for us, as you arrive at night and go to bed.
