Virgin Airlines are known for being at the forefront of design and they are always pushing the boundaries to be the best in the business. And they have just cracked it again with this new incredible and breath-taking business class cabin, simply “the business”.
As was the case with last year’s PriestmanGoode business class cabin design for Swiss International Airlines, Virgin Airlines has just introduced their new International Business Class cabin. The new cabin layout is being installed on the carrier’s fleet of Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, initially for flights across the Pacific between Australia and Los Angeles. The update will also be rolled out to services between Australia and Abu Dhabi.
With a ‘reverse herringbone” layout, the cabin accommodates 37 individual suites, making the most efficient use of space. It also means that every suite has direct access to the aisle. The suites are designed to afford passengers a degree of privacy.
Each of the seats will convert into huge 80-inch lie in flat beds, so passengers will be able to get a comfortable night’s sleep for the whole 18 hours. The beds even have memory foam topper to ensure the most comfort on the route. The size of the TV screens has also been increased to an 18-inch HD touchscreen and a bar at which to booze and schmooze.
The airline also offers hundreds of hours of movies, TV shows and music, as well as access to Wi-Fi. Virgin says that, at 18-in, the screens in business class are the largest on any flights between Australia and North America and provide HD playback and touch control.
International Business Class passengers also have a variety of benefits when it comes to what to eat. Before the first meal is served, passengers are offered a choice of Bellini, Kir Royale or Mimosa cocktails, along with a plate of canapés.
This kind of luxury doesn’t really come cheap. Flights are starting at £4, 500. Wouldn’t You rather fly this breath-taking class?
