    I saw the headline of this post and had to click over. My husband just left for San Francisco and always fly’s Virgin. However, this trip was booked through United…he fought it tooth and nail. He text me as soon as it landed and said I wouldn’t believe how fabulous it was. He said his flight had TV headrests just like Virgin and he felt like he flew first class.

    I’m so excited to hear they have stepped up their game and are playing with the big boys now 🙂 Oh and that foods looks yummy!

    And love that you prepped this post while flying. True journalist!

    Lala! Thank you for the kind words. This trip is especially inspiring. I don’t want to forget a thing so I’ve been pounding away on notes and picture taking.

    I was so impressed with my flight. Don’t get me wrong, it was long, no wi-fi, and did I mention looooooooooong? But the it was a very pleasant 5.5 hours.

      Hi 1life196countries: Thank you for stopping by The Jet Set Family! I was very pleased with United. The trip back was on an even nicer plane and I was also very impressed with their ease at boarding and how quickly our luggage arrived at baggage claim. Overall, very pleasant experience with United! – Jet Set Mom

    What headphones did you use? Were they for your child? Did they work well? Trying to find some good headphones for my 5 and 3 year old for a 5 hour plane ride
