I have no problems with the seats or tables, but the food at weekends leaves a lot to be desired for a coeliac like me.

I’ve noted before that Virgin don’t have anything gluten-free except drinks and it gets worse as bananas have been deleted.

I don’t think I’ll be going First Class on Virgin so often.

  4. […] On Sunday, I’ll be coming back from Wigan after the Ipswich match. Again, I’ve not got a reservation and I’ll be checking out coach E first. If there is no space, I will probably pay for a Weekend First Upgrade. If the train’s occupancy is true to form, First won’t be very full! […]
