Virgin Atlantic is a British airline and part of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group. Delta Air Lines agreed on 11 December 2012 to purchase Singapore Airlines' stake, which is due to be completed by the end of 2013. Virgin Atlantic's headquarters is in Crawley, West Sussex, England, near Gatwick Airport. Virgin Atlantic uses a mixed fleet of Airbus and Boeing wide-bodied jets and operates between the United Kingdom and North America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia from its bases at Gatwick and Heathrow airports. Domestic flights within the United Kingdom began from 31 March 2013.
Business ClassUpper Class is the equivalent of business class on all Virgin Atlantic Airways' flights. Virgin does not offer a traditional First Class cabin service. 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. Some A330-300 aircraft are not fitted with Upper Class but new A330s introduced since April 2012 include Virgin Atlantic's new 'Upper Class Dream Suite' seats and cabin, which will be rolled out through the rest of the Virgin Atlantic fleet by 2015.
Premium Economy ClassPremium 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. As with Economy, in November 2006, Virgin launched an updated product with a wider seat that also supplies laptop power. It is being installed across the fleet starting with London Heathrow-based A340 aircraft. As of January 2013 all Airbus A340s, A330s, and London Heathrow Boeing 747s have the new product. The Premium Economy cabin on the new A330-300s consists of 59 seats at the front of the aircraft.
Economy ClassEconomy 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, updated economy seats have adjustable lumbar support.
