What airline to use for Orlando in May?

I am going to Orlando in May. We are flying from Glasgow & I'm not sure what airline to choose - Virgin Atlantic or Thomson? Anyone got any experience of both?

Ask this on the Air Travel forum for best results. tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g1-i10702-Air_Trav… I really don't think there is a single "correct" answer.

The cheapest does it for me usually but flying into Sanford would draw me to VA

Have done Thomson many years ago, but only do scheduled now as so much more choice of the hour and day that you want to fly.....so VA for us.

There is nothing wrong with the Sanford airport. It is farther away than Orlando International and, unless you are renting a car, transportation to/from your hotel will be more expensive. On the plus side, it is smaller and quieter and perhaps easier to navigate.

If you're not driving then MCO is your best option in my opinion
