Flying Virgin with children


I'm flying to Orlando in October with my four children who will be 12,8,4 and 11 months.

I'm just wondering how well virgin will cater for my 11 month old?

Things like warming milk and food available etc.

Any info, hints or tips would be appreciated,

Many thanks x

Gold Coast...

Flown Virgin 3-4 times per year in the first couple of years with my son. Service and helpfulness was fantastic. I brought all my own baby food with me and formula as well. They cleaned bottles and heated them on request, were helpful and even carried my baby around the cabin (clucky male flight attendant missing his own kids!). I really cannot rate the experience highly enough. It's good to have a pacifier or something to suck on to clear the ears during take off and landings (avoids all the screaming and crying). also bring anything that is comforting/familiar.

I also had my son throw up once all over the place at 11 months on a flight from LA and I was so glad I brought tons of changes of clothes, as we ran out. He got sick on something he nibbled on during the stopover (or he was motionsick), but it was a mess, so bring changes of clothes and little toys/books, socks, a favourite blankie and a sheet to cover the cot from the overhead ligths for better sleep. good luck.

Good luck.
