Ten year old aircraft with entertainment system that was showing its age and wear and tear. I couldn't be bothered with it after about 20 minutes. Standard poor economy seat width and comfort. It was easily wide enough for me to get in but for eleven hours would be nice to have some wiggle room. Comfort is not dissimilar to flying in a 757 to Lanzarote. I can stick that for 4 hours but would expect a bit more for nearly three times as long.
The seat actually wasn't in a bad position given its proximity to the loo. The toliet is right behind the seat but the door is on the other side and its proximity to the galley tended to restrct the number of people going past. The sound of the flush is no greater than for anyone within about 5 rows of a toilet and didn't stop me from dozing off. Normal recline on the seat and I was able to stretch my legs out under the seat in front. Crew were friendly and service was good. The breakfast croissant was 'interesting' and gave the impression of having been stood on prior to being microwaved. 2-4-2 configuration is adequate.

Standard economy seat width, although just comfortable enough for what it is. Seat had normal recline with the advantage of no one behind. Just as well considering that the woman in front reclined during take off and stayed that way during most of the flight, clearly irritated by the cabin crews instructions for her to sit up during meal service. Seat pitch is 'standard' 31" although I was able to stretch my legs out under the seat in front and I'm 6'2".
Service was good, in fact better than I've experienced on previous transatlantic flights with Virgin. The food and drink seemed to keep coming. The location next to the galley didn't really cause any issues and the lack of a toilet at the back was a blessing for the lack of other passengers passing by. It was however a farce in the middle of the aircraft with continual queues and people loitering around row 21. Presumably some had paid extra to sit in these seats, if so I'd have wanted a refund. In many ways being at the back was nice for being 'out of the way'. Don't like the 3-3-3 configuration, it really doesn't make sense and inevitably forces families apart and strangers next to you in the already narrow economy seats. A 2-4-2 would make far more sense. Overall no more comfortable than anything else I've travelled on. Fancy coloured lighting and bigger windows are ok to look at but a wider seat would be nice when spending 10 hours on a plane. The problem is that going economy one expects nothing special and so gets nothing special.
