Virgin Atlantic is one of the largest airlines in the United Kingdom. Established in 1984 and part owned by Richard Branson. They directly serve over 30 destinations worldwide from North America, Africa, the Caribbean and the Far East.  In recent years they entered a Joint venture with Delta Airlines opening up a number of key routes in North America allowing connections to over 200 destinations.

Virgin Atlantic has built a reputation for itself as one of the “coolest” airlines in the world with a trendy bar found on board their Upper class deck and cabin crew dressed in their Iconic red uniform making them unmistakable in any airport terminal.

Virgin Atlantic has a varied mix in its current fleet of 37 crafts comprising of Airbus and Boeing planes. In late 2014 they began flying the Boeing 787 to a number of key destinations from London Heathrow to Boston, Los Angeles, New York, Newark, Delhi, Hong Kong and Shanghai. The craft offers a greater level of comfort and has a vastly improved fuel efficiency making it one of the most environmentally friendly crafts in the air. The configuration on the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner is 31 Upper Class, 35 Premium Economy and 198 Economy class seats.

They have bucked the trend of other major airlines in purchasing bigger crafts in favour of more noise reducing and fuel efficient crafts and are due to receive 8 brand new Airbus A350-1000’s starting from 2019 and plans for a further 4 crafts leased by 2020. This paves the way for its future fleet being one of the most technology advanced and environmentally considerate in the industry.
