Find out all about Virgin Atlantic
Economy is the standard basic class of Virgin Atlantic. Economy features include meals, drinks, headsets and amenity kits for all passengers. Seats have a minimum seat pitch of 31 in (depending on the aircraft type). In addition, economy seats have adjustable lumbar support.
Premium Economy has a separate check-in area, priority boarding, a wider seat with more legroom, and additional cabin services such as a preflight drink, newspapers and dedicated cabin crew. An updated Premium Economy service was recently introduced with meals served on china & glass with metal cutlery. Your Premium Economy experience also includes a wider seat that also supplies laptop power.
Upper Class is the equivalent of business class on all Virgin Atlantic Airways’ flights. Virgin does not offer a traditional First Class cabin service. The Upper Class seat turns into a fully-flat bed when you’re ready to sleep! The seat offers in-seat laptop power and power leads for iPods, and Upper Class passengers have access to a chauffeur, drive-through check-in and private security channel at some airports, Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses, a larger menu than that of Premium Economy and Economy passengers and an in-flight bar. The seats in the Upper Class cabin are arranged in a Herringbone seating design.
All cabin classes on all Virgin Atlantic aircraft offer personal seat-back televisions. Most aircraft have an Audio/Video on Demand (AVOD) system called VERA On Demand. Some aircraft have VERA Reel which is not on Demand. Newer aircraft have a new touch screen system called VERA Touch.
