Back in the UK. Glad I managed to catch the second half of a hastily organised party and see some friends.

The Virgin flight was canceled so we were all shuffled off onto the BA one that left 20 minutes earlier. Virgin have 3 classes; "Economy", "Premium Economy", "Upper". BA have 4; "World Traveller","World Traveller Plus","Club World" and "First". There's a slight mismatch in qualities, Virgin Premium Economy is slightly better than World Traveller Plus (but nowhere near Club World), which caused various people to whine about not getting the service they'd paid for. There were also a few young kids in the cabin, one with a really piercing shriek. All in all, I've had better flights.
