Airline and hotel news from around the world
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.”
