Phil Whittingham, MD for Virgin Trains on the West Coast, said: “What better way to celebrate 20 years of Virgin Trains than with our longest ever seat sale. From introducing the iconic Pendolino train and doubling passenger numbers, through to ground-breaking firsts like Automatic Delay Repay and our entertainment system BEAM, we’re proud of the impact we’ve had on UK rail travel. So we’ve knocked up to 55% off nearly one and a half million tickets, as we say thank you to our customers – we couldn’t have done it without you!” http://www.travelandtourworld.com/
