Our re-fitted 747s
Virgin Atlantic has completed the re-fit of all its Boeing 747 fleet which fly out of London Gatwick, Manchester and Glasgow at a cost of more than £50 million.
It was the ultimate spring clean, requiring 125 project staff from start to finish working over 95,000 hours to fit over 32,000 new parts.
We are proud to introduce a more comfortable, better designed seat. Passengers can now experience our brand new JAM entertainment system with over 300 hours of on demand entertainment.
Premium Economy now features the leather seating which can also be found on our Heathrow fleet. With up to 38" of seat pitch and 21" width, you really can stretch out and relax.
Luxurious Upper Class
We've given our Upper Class suite a total refresh. You can now enjoy a new entertainment system as well as first class service. Prepare to be spoilt rotten.
