A full-service, international airline, Virgin Atlantic flies daily to Hong Kong, with a same plane service on to London.

As the first airline to offer seat-back TVs in Economy and the pioneer of both Premium Economy and the herringbone seat design in Upper Class, this innovative airline is the antidote to ordinary travel.

You always sense the Upper Class Experience will be special from the moment your chauffeured car arrives to collect you.

The feeling grows as you breeze through the dedicated check-in and, at Heathrow, through private security.

Almost instantly, you find yourself in Virgin Atlantic’s stunning Clubhouse, where your only difficulty might be choosing between  the spa or a cocktail, and then to your Upper Class Suite.

This is the way to fly: a generous leather seat that flips niftily into one of the longest flat beds in any business class. There’s elegant in-flight bar and superb dining, whenever you wish.

Remembering it all as we drive you from the plane to your destination, you think how right that initial feeling was. Except that ‘special’ turned out to be an understatement.

There’s an elegant in-flight bar in Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class Experience.
