Economy

An easy journey from start to finish, for an exceptional price you can experience one of Virgin Atlantic's 3 Economy products.

Economy Delight means you can speed through the airport by using Premium check in desks, enjoy priority boarding, and get first dibs on overhead storage before settling into your extra legroom seat with 34" seat pitch.

Economy Classic comes with advanced seat assignment included, so there's no worries about paying extra to get the seats you want, next to the people you want.

And if you're happy to pack less, Economy Light means you still get everything you’d expect on a great flight - but at a price you wouldn’t.

All our new Economy services include delicious food, entertainment and irresistible personal service. Whichever you choose, you can start your journey quickly and easily by checking in online 24 hours before departure.

Premium

Experience what it’s like to have nothing. That is, nothing in the way when you kick back and stretch out in Virgin Atlantic’s enhanced Premium cabin. It’s pampering at the highest level.

  • You’ll enjoy dedicated Premium Check In and priority boarding.
  • Before departing, you’ll be offered a complimentary newspaper and glass of bubbly.
  • Your Premium seat is clad in plush leather and it’s 21 inches wide – equivalent to many airlines’ business class. And with 38 inches of seat pitch, you can stretch out and enjoy the flight in comfort.
  • Like Virgin Atlantic’s friendly crew, their seat looks after you while respecting your personal space. You can recline properly with up to 16 degrees, instead of just tilting a little.
  • Need to turn your seat into an office? With a spacious table complete with a laptop power outlet*, your seat transforms into a perfect mobile office.
  • Fancy a movie? TV? Music? There is up to 300 hours of entertainment waiting for you on your personal seatback screen.
  • A refreshing approach to in-flight dining - whatever you choose from the menu, it comes on proper china with stainless steel cutlery, and an after dinner liqueur to finish.
  • Upon landing, you’re one of the first off the plane, and because your bags have priority tags, they’re some of the first off the plane too.

*Available on London Heathrow flights. Passengers will need to purchase an onboard laptop adaptor pack.

Upper Class

To London in luxury, all at a business class fare.

  • Your complimentary chauffeur driven car* takes you to and from the airport, at both ends of your journey.
  • Business becomes pleasure at each of Virgin Atlantic’s Clubhouses. All are uniquely designed so you can do as much, or as little, as you want pre-flight.
  • Onboard, stretch out to sleep in one of the longest fully flat beds in the sky.
  • On select flights, they set aside part of the plane as a unique Snooze Zone, where the lights are always dimmed and there are minimum interruptions.
  • With direct aisle access from each Suite, it’s easy to stroll down to the onboard bar to mix and mingle.
  • Begin the day on a high note with an invigorating shower, clothes pressed and breakfast at Revivals, Virgin Atlantic’s Heathrow arrivals lounge.
  • Upon your return to Heathrow, whizz through their Private Security Channel and arrive in their award-winning Clubhouse in minutes.

*Restrictions apply to limo service.

Flights Review

I tried at every stage to purchase an upgrade to Business class, sadly Delta flat out refused. It was heartbreaking to see business class mostly empty. I could not believe they didn’t want my money. Virgin policy is so much better than Delta.

We paid extra so we could pick seats, on the first leg of the flight , there were no seats to pick , other what was assigned to us

We had a great experience overall, the only exception was the passenger in seat next to me became aggressive due to room. (57G)

Excellent! TV entertainment system was clunky to use and a bit glitchy. Not really a complaint - just an observation! Love flying Virgin! :)
