Reffered to as “Red Velvet”, the new Virgin Atlantic plane will launch late this summer and tickets can be purchased as early as this month. The designer Airbus will give passengers the luxury of a new upper class cabin, as well as a suite, an air bar as well as a social place for gatherings.

Known as “The Loft” the social space for gatherings will offer a variety of cocktails and dinner plates for visitors to choose from.

“The introduction of our A350 represents a true evolution of our customer experience,” Virgin Atlantic Executive Vice President Mark Anderson said in a statement. “We believe flying should be exciting, whether it’s your first or 100th flight with us and that’s why we’ve elevated our offering to provide our customers with something totally unique.”

“The A350 forms a significant part of our fleet transformation strategy and by 2022, we’ll have our youngest, cleanest, greenest fleet in the sky as the aircraft transforms our customer experience, reduces our environmental impact and improves our route economics,” Anderson continued.

The new Virgin Atlantic  airbus will be a modern marvel in both technology and luxury. Passengers that purchase the upper class seats will have access to large flat screen televisions, privacy screens, and even suites that feature flat beds.

Even if a passenger isn’t in the upper class section, they will still enjoy modern comforts such as high-speed internet as well as the personalized service options.
