The Upper Class Bar in action

At the rear of the Upper Class cabin is the rather futuristic bar, complete with Swarovski crystal accents. Unlike past iterations, it is now completely separate from the cabin and therefore those socializing at the bar are unlikely to disturb other passengers. The bar has four stools (two face each other allowing people to dine together) as well as room for four standing guests. Lighting in the bar area is independent of the rest of the aircraft and there’s a 24” video screen that can display the moving map or what Virgin calls “ambient backdrops.”

Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy

Virgin has a separate premium economy cabin, with 35 seats arranged in a 2-3-2 layout.

Each seat is 22” wide and has a pitch of 38”. The seat has a footrest, headrest, and lumbar support. The seat features greater recline and more knee room than Virgin’s premium economy seats on other aircraft.

Passengers will find an 11.1” monitor for the in-flight entertainment system in the seatback in front. Each seat also has its own power outlet and USB port.

The Premium Economy cabin also features the Wander Wall, a self-service bar and refreshment area intended as a social space, although, unlike the Upper Class bar, it has no seats.

Virgin Atlantic Economy

In Virgin’s Economy cabin, each row has nine seats arranged in a 3-3-3 configuration, except for the last two rows, which have three seats each in the center. Each seat comes with what its manufacturer, Recaro, calls a hammock-type headrest and is 17.5” wide with a pitch of 31”.
