Dumbest travel mistake I ever made was booking a Virgin flight for my honeymoon. Got to check in and the agent was one of the most pernickety and miserable I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. Required us to weigh our cabin bags and transfer stuff from them to checked luggage, told us we could not bring our liquids (purchased same day at another airport and in a sealed bag) through security, and was otherwise very negative. Worse to come on board where every time there was a PA announcement, which was all too frequent, they jacked up the volume through the headphones to over 9000, meaning we effectively couldn't use the IFE. It's one of three airlines I declared I would never fly again, and I have kept my promise in each case. [The other two went bust, so Virgin is the only one I'm still avoiding.]
