Monday 29th January 2018, Virgin Atlantic unveiled the first of four new Airbus A330-200 to join their fleet. “Daydream believer” arrived into Gatwick for finishing touches before it enters into service in March 2018.

The unique Upper Class cabin introduces three new seat styles for Virgin Atlantic customers to choose from – the Love Suite, the Freedom Solo Suite, and the Corner Solo Suite – all with direct aisle access. Customers will also be able to select from a special barista style coffee menu; receive free messaging, and an improved amenity kit featuring ‘Happy Socks’.
