Upper Class revamp for Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic has unveiled brand new interiors for a new four-strong fleet of A330-200 aircraft acquired from the receivers of Air Berlin.  The aircraft will be retrofitted with a Premium cabin, along with a new look and feel for Upper Class and a refreshed Economy.

Due to roll out globally from November, customers travelling on the airline’s latest aircraft will be able to enjoy the full benefits of the award-winning Premium cabin.  All 35 seats are set in a dedicated section, and offer a 38in seat pitch and bespoke food and drink.

Exclusive to the A330-200s, all Upper Class suites will feature direct aisle access and enhanced surface area for additional personal space.  The seat fabric has been entirely upholstered with natural and soft Espresso leather, underlining the cabin’s distinctive Virgin Atlantic flair.

Economy will feature classic red and beige tones, along with brand new leather headrests.  Each cabin will also feature Black Cherry curtains and carpets, along with refreshed bathrooms, stylish mood lighting and wall finishes.  Standard for Virgin Atlantic, all flights will offer high-speed wi-fi, power in every seat and the latest onboard entertainment.
