Virgin PE

We have just upgraded to Premium economy for £189 return. Have we got a good deal and will it be worth the extra.

Thanks in advance.

It's only a good deal if you got a good price for Economy. A good price would be under £600. If so, £189 is good, even withstanding the £162 APD tax which you'd need to pay.

It's definitely worth the extra on the newly refurbished aircraft. You should have a jolly good time onboard and also take advantage of the increased luggage allowance (2pcs @ 23kg each) to stock up on local goodies such as rum.

Regards

Yes I'd say so but agree it depends on the price of your Econ ticket. I paid £813 for PE returns for next Feb which I was happy with (apart from the taxes!) so if it comes out under £800 in total I'd be pleased.

I have paid £140 pp one way to upgrade at Gatwick airport before now so if it is £189 return per person then that is a good price.

£502 is fantastic. You will definitely be on a refurbished plane from MAN in April 2013.
