Paid to upgrade to priority economy ,when I found my seat (isle) the person in the next seat was very large and his body was taking up approximately one third of my seat.luckily the flight was not full and the staff who were excellent were able to find me another seat. I travel to the UK at least once a year this was my first time with Virgin ,on return flights the blinds are all down so that people can sleep this was not the case on this flight this is my only complaint. I will defiantly use virgin again
