I travel with Virgin Trains regularly and I've always found it to be a very good service to be honest.
Like most sensible people, I book a seat in advance and, by and large, the earlier you do so the cheaper the fare.
The last time I traveled back from London a friend joined me and sat in a 'reserved' seat next to me rather than his own which was in a different carriage.
Unlike the Carry on Corbyn fiasco there was no absolutely fuss or drama involved.
