The one-offs that make Edinburgh brilliant
Order snacks from your seat
When the caffeine and cake cravings get too much (or you've given up hope that the drinks trolley will EVER reach you), jump the queue and order snacks from your seat.
Virgin America's in-flight entertainment system doesn't just serve up movies and music. With a few taps on a personal screen (and the all-important swipe of your credit card) you can order snacks, delivered to your seat faster than Usain Bolt in a Branson broadband ad.
Be warned though. You can also shop for more than 200 items in the Red Store and with Virgin's 'open tab feature' you only have to reach for your credit card once, no matter how many orders you place. Get carried away and that coffee could end up costing you.

My main gripe is kids on 'planes.
Bad enough if they are a few rows away but if they are on the row behind, kicking the back of the seat in front, it's an absolute nightmare. Happened to me a couple of times, yet when I nicely asked the parents to stop their kids kicking I was told I was a bully, to be nice, be kind, be patient etc.
Anyone know of any airlines that ban kids? Please let me know.
The best ever airline that I flew with regulary take a lot of beating for their excellent check in, cabin crew and In flight service.......sadly they are no more but their memeories linger on.
RIP British Caledonian Airways (BCAL)

...BIGGER SEATS, TAKE UP MORE ROOM SO THERE WILL BE LESS SEATS,
AND THE FEWER THE SEATS, THE LESS NUMBER OF PAYING PASSENGERS
YOU HAVE TO PAY ONE WAY OR ANOTHER
ON SOME AIRLINES THEY HAVE ECON0MY PLUS AND YOU PAY FOR A LITTLE
EXTRA LEG ROOM.
Air New Zealand are brilliant for flights from GB to NZ.
However, they have just reduced their luggage allowance so if you're going for longer than 2 weeks I wouldn't recommend them now.
