I was quite excited to try out Premium Economy on Virgin Atlantic. It had been a while since I had flown with Virgin. When I was living in Australia I used Virgin Australia frequently. Is it just me or do other people also get confused with the different Virgin airlines? I really do think there should just be one! Anyway, I digress.I have flown Virgin Atlantic business class and economy before and really enjoyed both. So expectations were high for Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy!

THREE young kids who were flying with no parents were forced to sleep in an airport store room surrounded by boxes after a Virgin Australia blunder. Nine-year-old John Meredith and two other boys, who did not know each other, spent the night in the makeshift room after storms meant their plane diverted to Melbourne. His mum, Katie, claims the airline did not inform family members about where John was or whether he was ok for several hours. The boy was flying unaccompanied on last Thursday night’s Virgin Australia flight from Brisbane to Sydney, where he was visiting his grandparents. His flight had been due to land in Sydney at 9.10pm – but his waiting grandparents were not told about the diversion until 11.40pm. “My parents were waiting at the gate and no one was around to tell them it had been diverted,” Katie told the Gold Coast Bulletin. “It was at 11.40 that night they were finally contacted by someone from Virgin telling them John had landed in … [Read more...] about Boy, 9, and two other kids flying with no parents forced to sleep in cardboard box den in airport store room after Virgin Australia ‘bungle’

by Annabel Fenwick-Elliott from The Telegraph, February 5, 2019 Rather unusually, as a travel writer, this is a destination I don't particularly want to tell you about. It's a corner of the world so bizarrely unlauded and so disproportionately beautiful; so quiet and uncluttered; so sun-drenched and breezy; so rich in its offerings - I'd really rather it stayed that way, under-populated with not a selfie stick in sight. It happens to be my father's homestead, and I've spent a lot of time there. The Fleurieu Peninsula is about an hour's drive from Adelaide. As a city, I'd argue, Adelaide wouldn't be first on the list for most travellers new to Australia, which is perhaps why this arresting stretch of coast remains so undisturbed.
