Virgin 747-400 (Manchester)

Can anyone tell me if you get TV screens for each seat? We have read that they have been refurbished for 2014. We fly April to Orlando, it's our first time on this type of plane and heard that you don't get backseat TV's. Thanks in advance :-)

Yes you do get seatback TVs and they have had them on VA 747s since we started flying long-haul 18 years ago!!!!

Wasn't it Thomas Cook who was getting rid of all their seatback TVs?

Updated interior, seat back screens, loads & loads of programs to watch, or games to play.

VA IFE takes some beating since the refurb - it's the best thing about the flight

If they could just refurb the food...........

The only thing about VA IFE, Is that the games are touch screen, So if you've got a child behind you who likes to play games , You have this ' Woodpecker' prodding the back of your neck for over 8 hours!!! VA may have to rethink on this one.
