Off to Bora Bora!

Hard to believe the entire summer flew by and now, upon me, is five days and four nights in exquisite Bora Bora. I am exhausted already from a crazy work week -- and the relentless drive to success will not relent while I am in Bora Bora -- however it will be nice to wake up to views which words can not adequately describe.
I can only hope I make it through the long-haul flight. My flight from D.C. to L.A. was not great. Normally I am super excited to fly Virgin America and certainly felt this way when I boarded the 5 1/2 hour flight. But I was shocked to see how aged the plane was when I boarded. Standard 3/3 configuration with beat-up seats.
Apparently all the money went to Virgin Atlantic and not Virgin America.
Then there was the issue of food/service/wifi/entertainment. Before Alaska Airlines bought Virgin America, I got free snacks and headphones to watch a glut of up-to-date entertainment. On today's flight I had to pay $3 for headphones, got zero snacks, had no free entertainment except satellite television and was bored to tears because the internet not only cost me $29.95 but was SO. SLOW.
Never again Virgin America. I'm going to stick with Delta and United! But, as I say, the only way to get from DC to London is with Virgin Atlantic. It's what I fly!!
