Trialling the Virgin kerbside checkin by taxi

Virgin has a private wing at Heathrow: normally you can only use it if your Upper Class ticket includes the chauffeured car but that means in-advance upgrades and doglegs and sale tickets don't qualify. For this flight we were asked to trial arriving at the wing by private car/taxi. comments: it's much more convenient - I hope they adopt this full-time. with being a trial there are a couple of things that will need to become part of the process: a form to say you're coming rather than phoning will be easy. and perhaps as they know the make, model and registration of the car for security they could use that to recognise you when you arrive at the barrier. but it's hugely more convenient and very welcome and nicely stylish. now all we need is a back way to get from security to the lounge :)

also - bacon sandwiches and massage for the win!
