Virgin Atlantic has unveiled details of its first, long-awaited Airbus A350-1000 aircraft, which includes an entirely new Upper Class cabin featuring a brand new suite and social space.

As the first airline to introduce an on-board bar, Virgin Atlantic has taken its customer proposition to the next level, as customers can now enjoy a social space known as The Loft. As the largest social space in the airline’s fleet, it’s designed for customers to gather, chat, enjoy a drink or dine with friends.

The Loft extends the airline’s renowned Clubhouse experience to the skies, offering a wide range of cocktails, and the option for customers to dine together and enjoy a Mile High afternoon tea.

The Loft is not the only innovation to the Upper Class cabin, as passengers will also experience an entirely new suite designed in collaboration with a number of Virgin Atlantic’s most frequent flyers.
