Virgin Atlantic is the UK’s second-largest flag carrier airline, taking passengers around the world on a range of transatlantic routes. Whilst the routes they cover are relatively limited in comparison to competitors, the airline has a reputation for providing a fun and unique service for passengers, which is a selling point for many travellers.
There are three classes of tickets on Virgin Atlantic Flights; Upper Class (business class), Premium and Economy. The quality of each class differs depending on the aeroplane you fly on, so Upper Class on an A350 is likely to be a superior experience to one of their A330-300s.
Virgin Atlantic partnered with Delta Air Lines in 2021 to expand their route offering within the USA, as well as codesharing with several other carriers like Air France, KLM, Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand. They only offer long-haul flights at present, but the experiences on these flights are known for being exceptional.
