EasyJet is not Southwest Airlines. It is more like Allegiant because you should 'expect everything, carry nothing'. I was looking for a cheap option to get from London to Athens after fog forced me to miss my flight to Poland. I had heard the horror stories of Ryanair and opted for Easyjet instead.
Not a lot of entertainment in this part of the Trip Report but some useful information that I wish I would've known ahead of time that may be of benefit to you if you are flying into Heathrow and out of another London airport. Nothing is as stressful as arriving in one terminal and being forced to depart from another.
In the future we will cross the Atlantic on a flying machine, arrive before the start of the business day, and treat ourselves to an a la carte meal before heading to the office.
Everything about Virgin Atlantic Upper class is a party. In fact, it was my favorite flight I've ever taken not because it was Emirates, Singapore, or Cathay quality, but because the passengers and cabin crew were like Janice in Account, they just don't give a F*ck. And that's a good thing.
