Virgin Atlantic has revealed a new interior to its A350 aircraft, designed specifically for leisure customers.
The changes include an increased number of seats in both the Premium and Economy cabins, alongside a new social space for its Upper Class customers.
‘The Booth’ is its latest innovation and is exclusively available to customers travelling to the airline’s leisure destinations on-board the A350.
Virgin says The Booth provides lounge style seating for two, separated by a single leaf table.
It has two 27″ touch screen monitors with initial content includingg a digital art gallery and a tail and belly cam of the aircraft.
Customers travelling between Heathrow and Orlando are expected to be the first to experience the newest aircraft, with the first flight currently scheduled for December 2021.
Other leisure destinations, including Barbados, will receive the new plane later in 2022.
The new seat configuration offers 397 seats in total, 16 Upper Class suites, 56 Premium seats and 325 in Economy.
The economy cabin will have 45 Economy Delight seats, offering customers extra legroom as well as priority boarding and advanced seat selection.
Corneel Koster, Chief Customer and Operations Officer at Virgin Atlantic, said “The introduction of The Booth elevates the customer proposition for our leisure travellers.”
The Booth was designed collaboratively by Virgin Atlantic’s in-house design team alongside London design agency Factorydesign.
