We're excited to reveal a new interior to our award winning A350 aircraft, designed specifically with our leisure customers in mind. The changes include an increased number of seats in the Economy cabin, alongside a new social space for our Upper Class customers.
‘The Booth’ is the latest innovation in our industry leading social spaces and is exclusively available to customers travelling to the airline’s sunny leisure destinations on-board the A350. Tucked away in the Upper Class cabin, The Booth aspires to create a cosy corner, providing comfy lounge style seating for two, separated by a single leaf table. It’s a luxurious spot to dine, have a cocktail, enjoy a range of content on the panoramic screens – even have a game of cards. The Booth can be enjoyed exclusively for a range of experiences for two people.
Customers travelling between Heathrow and Orlando are planned to be the first to experience the newest aircraft, with the first flight currently scheduled for December 2021*. Other leisure destinations, including Barbados, will receive the new plane later in 2022.
The new seat configuration offers 397 seats in total, 16 Upper Class suites, 56 Premium seats and 325 in Economy. Within the economy cabin, 45 seats will be Economy Delight, offering customers extra legroom as well as priority boarding and advanced seat selection.
Alongside The Booth, the A350 features our latest Upper Class suite design, which includes all window facing seats with a 44” pitch and fully flat 82” bed. Every cabin has the largest entertainment screens available on any Virgin Atlantic plane.
