  • The Upper Class Experience on Virgin Atlantic

    Flying during the pandemic? That too on an international flight? It is definitely a question that will raise a lot of eyebrows. Given the circumstances (and the necessity!), one of our team member had to take an international flight, from Mumbai to the United Kingdom (UK).

    Lockdown in the United Kingdom didn't restrict our travel plan. While we were confused what airline to fly, Virgin Atlantic it was finally.

    As an adult, there's just nothing better than having another grown person asking you if you want your bed made at 35000 feet

      Flying during the pandemic?
      Yes. And here you are on board one of the best aviation platforms who I know. You are a decent jetphotos member, so you have written 25 or 50 forum entries. And I assume that you enjoy being here.

      So. One thing you might have noticed.

      Nobody here raises an eyebrow.

      And you wanna know why not. You like the professional answer to that question, as I assume.

      Five or ten days ago, one of my friends from Lufthansa Technik showed on German TV what their work is all about. And I have to quote him in German, because I think we all deserve the Original:

      Die 747-400 will bewegt werden, die bekommt sonst eckige Reifen.
      And that's what my favorite airline does. As we see here, in the following jetphoto:

      D-ABVR. Boeing 747-430. is the biggest database of aviation photographs with over 5 million screened photos online!

      PS: To avoid that you might throw the word "off topic" against me.. Your aircraft was the VS-B787? I know that VS once also operated the 747. So in my eyes, the word 'upper class' also makes sense when we talk about the two passenger decks of a 747.
      Simply the 'upper deck' of the 747, which basically means the same as when you started this topic. It simply means, you don't sit in the last row.

      Afaik, my favorite airline calls that the 'Business class'. Leather seats with more leg space, and if you are lucky you see the Flight Captain on his way to and from his workspace.
