A NEW “REV­O­LU­TION­ARY” UP­PER CLASS

seat is com­ing to Vir­gin At­lantic’s 12 Air­bus A350-1000s, which the air­line will be­gin tak­ing de­liv­ery of from the mid­dle of 2019.

Vir­gin At­lantic’s se­nior vice-pres­i­dent, global sales and cus­tomer loy­alty, Oliver By­ers, said the A350-1000 was “a great op­por­tu­nity to in­tro­duce a new Up­per Class seat prod­uct”, adding that fur­ther de­tails will be re­vealed early in 2019.

“We’ve seen it, I’ve sat in it, it’s a fan­tas­tic seat,” he added. “What you’ll see is that it’s a next-gen­er­a­tion prod­uct, but it’s ex­actly what you would think Vir­gin At­lantic is in terms of the look, the de­sign, the feel of the cabin and the warmth of the en­vi­ron­ment.”
