Let’s take a look at closer look at what it means to fly the Virgin way.
Travelling in Economy has never felt so good with Virgin Atlantic. If you're happy to travel with hand luggage, Economy Light offers everything you'd expect on a great flight, but at a price you wouldn’t. Economy Classic grants you 23kg baggage allowance as well as free seat selection; who doesn’t love sitting next to their friends and family and getting to relax on your flight knowing all you have to do is wait for your holiday to start? To elevate this experience further, why not treat yourself to Economy Delight and take advantage of additional legroom, premium check-in and priority boarding.
On board, you’ll enjoy a three-course meal, drinks and tempting snacks throughout. Then settle in to over 300 hours of award-winning inflight entertainment, including blockbuster films, tremendous TV, music and games – everything to make your flight fly by.
Although all flying experiences with Virgin Atlantic are decidedly leisurely and comfortable, upgrading to Premium is where you really feel like a VIP. Start the smoothest of journeys with Premium Check In and priority boarding. On board, we offer you a glass of welcome bubbly as you settle in. There’s more space to stretch out because your leather seat is one of the biggest in its class; it’s up to 21in (over 53cm) wide, with a 38in (over 96cm) seat pitch.
At dinner time, you can choose from three delicious main dishes, served on a premium table setting with specially designed stainless steel cutlery and linen. Then perfectly finish off your meal with a liqueur. And you can help yourself to tasty snacks whenever you like from the Wander Wall.
You'll also be given a Premium amenity kit in a smart wallet, containing all the essentials you’ll need for a great flight. Depending on the time of day, we offer you a breakfast or light meal to enjoy before we land, setting you up for your arrival at your destination. On arrival, we make sure you and your priority tagged bags are among the first off, for easy onward holiday travel.
If Premium is a VIP experience, then Upper Class is the A-list experience. Departing from London Heathrow? You can glide right up to the Upper Class Wing in your own car or transfer, where the Virgin Atlantic team will greet you and handle all your bags. Then breeze through our Private Security Channel to the Clubhouse, where you’ll be relaxing within minutes.
Waiting doesn’t feel like waiting in the award winning Clubhouse, which is a calming and beautiful space to relax and unwind. Sip a cocktail as you choose from the menu of unique dishes and signature drinks. You may even be able to squeeze in a quick Peloton workout in before the flight thanks to Virgin’s thoughtfully integrated wellbeing facilities.
On board, your Upper Class Suite awaits. Its unique design gives you direct aisle access with the space to relax in privacy and comfort. The decadent experiences continues as you soar into the sky receiving the finest service with glasses of champagne on arrival, and a range of imaginatively designed dishes, desserts and fine wines from the unique menu. After dinner, make your way to the onboard bar, or The Loft. It’s your space to socialise or just relax with a drink. Whatever you feel like.
Upper Class suites are what everyone thinks about when luxury flights are considered, relax and luxuriate in your own private space. When you’re ready, your suite easily transforms into a spacious fully flat bed. Change into a cosy sleep suit, freshen up with products in your luxury amenity kit then settle under the soft duvet for a refreshing, undisturbed sleep. If you’ve caught up on your beauty sleep, then you’ll be able to browse from a wide and impressive selection of movies and in-flight entertainment. Now this is flying.
Whether you choose to fly Economy, Premium or Upper Class, we’ll sleep safe in the knowledge you are going to have the smoothest of flights. We’re delighted to combine our love of travelling and luxury accommodation with Virgin Atlantic’s passion for flying, and we sincerely hope you enjoy flying the Virgin way.
