Virgin Introduces 3 Economy Tiers
We’re delighted to announce the launch of three new ways to fly economy as part of a multi-million pound investment in the cabin for the 21st century traveller.
economy delight will offer the leading economy product of any UK airline – customers will enjoy a seat with 34 inch legroom, priority check in and boarding as well as advanced seat assignment.
economy classic will now offer free seat assignment – providing extra reassurance for families and groups that they can sit together.
The new economy light ticket will always offer our lowest fare – making long haul travel affordable and accessible for millennials, and customers jetting off on city breaks.
In addition, 12 new Airbus A350-1000 aircraft will join the fleet from spring 2019 – offering unrivalled levels of comfort and reliability for customers, and a brand new economy cabin designed with our customers in mind.
Virgin Atlantic and Delta offer the leading transatlantic partnership, and the new economy products will offer a seamless experience for customers travelling with the airlines. economy delight, economy classic and economy light will complement Delta’s Comfort +, Main Cabin and Basic Economy products – always offering a three course meal, Wi-Fi, hundreds of hours of inflight entertainment and excellent service regardless of the ticket type.
All this is part of a £300 million investment in their brand which is great news because it means a better experience potentially for customers! Definitely more choices too.
