My first experience in Upper Class cabin with Virgin Atlantic was truly memorable from the moment we arrived at the airport for our departure flight. With Dedicated airport check in, Exclusive Airport lounge, Priority Lane security and Priority boarding to the aircraft it is near impossible to feel like a VIP. Arriving in our beds in the upper class cabin, we were welcomed with a drink of our choice from an extensive menu of premium beverages whilst the rest of the aircraft embarked. Whilst I would usually be eagerly awaiting the aircraft doors closing, meaning we are ready for take-off, this was not the case. I was enjoying conversation with the crew, having a drink at the bar (yes, they have a bar in the upper class cabin!) feeling like I was already on my holiday.
Once in the air, I was very content watching the inflight entertainment with my drink in hand. The duration of the flight ‘flew’ by (pardon the pun) as I was so relaxed in the upper class cabin. Drinks and snacks (hot & cold) are included throughout the flight, which you may help yourself to from the bar, at any point. If they run out, no problem just ask!! Airplane meals have always been at the very bottom of my list of enjoyment (if they even made it on the list) but in upper class, I did not feel as though I was being served ‘Airplane Meals’ as choices included Fillet of Beef, Miso & black sesame roasted salmon, Spinach & Ricotta Tortelloni and Chicken Biryani. Food was very well presented and cooked. If you still feel peckish after your meal, you can order hot snacks which are available until your flight lands. Snacks include a Gourmet beef burger, Oriental Chicken Kebabs, Sandwiches, Bruschetta and more.
Your ‘bed’ on board will lie completely flat, allowing you to have a peaceful sleep with plenty of space!!
Being first on the aircraft allows you to sit and relax whilst the rest of the aircraft embark…… Being first off the aircraft allows you to clear passport control before the rest of the aircraft.
This was my first trip with Virgin Atlantic in Upper Class, and will certainly not be my last.
