We had an early start to our holiday, as we actually decided to stay at the Courtyard Mariott at Gatwick the night before, as the flight was quite early Friday morning. Virgin was flying us, and as usual we had a great flight with great service.
One thing that amused us, was that across the aisle was an older metro man, that had obviosuly been dressed by his wife. Wearing loafers with no socks and my absolute pet hate, a scarf! Not only was he wearing a scarf, but he wore it for the entire 8.5hr flight and even when we got off the plane in 70 degree heat!! What a muppet.
