Virgin Upper Class relaunched - including Richard Branson shaped ice cubes
Virgin Atlantic has launches redesigned upper class cabins with new beds and a 2.7-metre bar
By TTG on 14 May 2012 in News
Virgin Atlantic has invested £100 million in its upper class offering.
Over the next three years, the suites will be rolled out across all new Virgin aircraft joining the fleet, including the next route to fly the redesigned cabin - London Heathrow to Mumbai service beginning on October 28.
Virgin Atlantic’s head of design Luke Miles said "The bar acts as a memory piece - the new shape - it is now in a V-shape, rather than round as before - is designed to invite passengers into the cabin."
"In the seat, we’ve made it more spacious - it’s about how passengers feel in that space - we’ve developed little design features that they can keep on discovering throughout the journey."
Upper Class passengers have chance to cool their in-flight drinks this Spring with the launch of its 'Little Richard' ice cubes.
The bespoke ice cubes, which will be served on board one of the first flights of the airline's new Upper Class Cabin this May, have been crafted in the image of Virgin Atlantic’s president Sir Richard Branson.
Other new elements in the suite include over 1,000 Swarovski crystals lining some of the walls, as well as mood lighting and a 12.1 inch touchscreen monitor with a touchscreen handset.
