Virgin Atlantic reveals truth about romantic getaways

Friday, October 8th, 2010

Having to share a toilet with a new partner is a big issue for nearly half those who responded to a recent survey conducted by Virgin Atlantic. The relationship poll reveals that taking a trip away with a loved one too early on in a relationship may spell trouble. British travellers also admitted having hang ups with their bodies with 17 per cent saying they were nervous about getting their clothes off on the beach.

Getting ill was a concern for 34 per cent of respondents and 15 per cent said either they or their partner decided to throw the towel in before the holiday was over and went home alone. After getting back from a trip abroad more than half said they needed to take some time away from their partner.

Well over half of those polled said they felt too many couples decide to take a holiday with each other too early on in their relationship, and 35 per cent admitted they wished they had taken the holiday without their partner.

Virgin Atlantic’s product and service director, Dee Cooper, said: “We have lots of couples who take their first flight together on us to our great cities or more exotic destinations.  Of course they are excited but they may also be a little nervous jetting off to a faraway country with somebody new, so we do our best to help them relax and enjoy their trip.

 ”A complimentary drink always helps our customers settle.  But if the conversation dries up we have over 300 hours of interactive in flight entertainment to enjoy whilst on board.  We’ve even recently introduced Love Heart Sweets on board to try and get those couples in the mood for nostalgia and romance.”
