Best of business class: Virgin Atlantic’s new Airbus A350 cabin

Virgin Atlantic has revealed new business class suites on the Airbus A350-1000 to replace its aging Boeing 747s – while reimagining the business class experience in collaboration with their most frequent fliers.

The new Business Class cabin (Virgin Atlantic calls it “Upper Class”) includes new suite-style seats and a social space to replace the bar.

The carrier operates bars on all its long-haul aircraft, but “The Loft” represents something new; “the largest social space in the airline’s fleet”.

The space has a chandelier and offers space for 8 people: 3 standing, 5 seated, with seat belts in case of turbulence. The Loft also has a 32″ screen and eight Bluetooth audio jacks, enabling passengers to watch something together.

The entire aircraft will also have access to high speed Wi-Fi.

Passengers will get their first look at the real thing on Virgin Atlantic’s first 335-passenger A350-1000 – named Red Velvet – when it begins flying in late summer 2019 between London and New York.
