Flying with Virgin Atlantic has never been so lavish with a range of new services and outstanding enhancements on-board the 787-9 Dreamliner fleet including one of the longest fully flat beds of any carrier, walk-up bar and a four-course restaurant-style menu serving a selection of French wines.
Gia Acitelli, Regional General Manager South-East Asia, Australia and New Zealand at Virgin Atlantic Airways says, “At Virgin Atlantic we place great emphasis on setting high standards in air travel. Upper Class makes your journey something to really look forward to and with added benefits unique to Virgin Atlantic we guarantee an exceptional experience like no other.”
“Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class guests can carry three pieces of baggage at 32kg each and have exclusive access to the drive-through check-in at London Heathrow, via our Upper Class Wing, and our award-winning Clubhouse lounges around the world,” says Acitelli.
“The Upper Class Wing is tailored to make the journey from London Heathrow Terminal 3 as quick and easy as possible. On arrival, the Virgin Atlantic team will be ready to swiftly handle passengers’ baggage, hand out individual boarding passes and provide access to a private security channel, beating the queues in as little as 10 minutes. This seamless and stress-free transition will then lead guests to the Clubhouse, the perfect place to catch up on work or relax before any flight,” says Acitelli.
On board, guests are greeted with a pre-flight glass of champagne, access to the walk-up onboard bar with bar stools and fully serviced continental breakfast and high tea complete with sandwiches and an array of cakes. Virgin Atlantic has also pioneered a seat which flips proficiently into one of the longest fully flat beds across all business class carriers at the touch of a button. Travellers are offered a complimentary sleep suit to make their journey extra comfortable, with the cabin crew on hand to wake them when it’s time to land.
