Virgin Atlantic showcases ‘The Booth’ premium social space
Virgin Atlantic has launched new premium on board experiences exclusively on its A350 fleet
They have been designed specifically with its leisure customers in mind.
The Booth social space offers an array of enhanced experiences like wine and cognac tastings.
The Booth is Virgin’s latest innovation in in-flight social spaces and is available on its A350s with a leisure configuration.
Tucked away in the Upper Class cabin, The Booth offers comfy lounge style seating.
It offers a number of experiences for two, including private dining as well as wine and cognac tasting.
The wine tasting experience serves drinks by The Uncommon, a UK producer of wine in a can.
Customers in The Booth can sample a curated selection of three wines from The Uncommon, which include an English White and Rose, alongside a lighter spritzer.
A cognac tasting experience with chocolate pairings courtesy of Delamain is also available.
Every customer taking part in the tasting experience will receive a tasting glass to keep as a memento.
Other experiences include ‘Dinner for Two’ private dining for two and ‘Game Time’ playing card games..
Customers on the airline’s London Heathrow to Orlando flights will be the first to experience the Booth.
Corneel Koster, Chief Customer and Operations Officer at Virgin Atlantic, commented; “We always strive to create brilliantly different experiences for our customers and the introduction of The Booth demonstrates this perfectly.”
“Whether that’s sampling the leading English wines from The Uncommon, sipping Delamain’s signature cognac or simply enjoying a game of rummy at 38,000 feet, we’ve got something on offer to suit every one of our customers’ tastes.”
The Booth was designed collaboratively by Virgin Atlantic’s in-house design team alongside London design agency Factorydesign.
