We have been reporting on the ongoing miserable saga of Virgin Atlantic’s failing Rolls Royce plane engines on their Boeing 787 aircraft. The good news is that this cloud of misery now has a silver lining.

Travel website HeadforPoints reports that Virgin is now offering a decent compensation. The compensation is pretty amazing. Try a FREE Upper-Class flight to anywhere in the world!

This particular reader had been booked to fly Virgin Atlantic Upper Class from Manchester to Barbados. He was called by Virgin and told that his aircraft would no longer have an Upper Class cabin and that he would be downgraded to Premium Economy.

His compensation? A Virgin Atlantic Upper-Class ticket to ANYWHERE on the Virgin network, valid for three years, taxes included, or 100,000 Flying Club miles. See more details on HeadforPoints.

Let’s hope that they keep up this level of compensation for other passengers.
