Tickets go on sale for Virgin's A350

Customers can now book flights on Virgin Atlantic's brand new A350 aircraft, which features its redesigned upper class cabin and unique social space, called The Loft.

The aircraft's first commercial service is expected to take place on September 10 from Heathrow to New York JFK. 

Flights are on sale from today, starting at £279 return in economy, £773 in Premium and £1358 in Upper Class. 

Four A350s, called Mamma Mia, Red Velvet, Rain Bow and Queen of Hearts, will join the fleet by the end of 2019, initially flying the Heathrow-JFK route.

Virgin Atlantic will continue to take delivery of a further eight A350s throughout 2020- 2021.

The final five planes will offer a leisure configuration and will operate routes to Florida and the Caribbean from Gatwick and Airport. These deliveries will take place in 2021 as the airline beings to retire its 747 fleet.

The A350 is the first aircraft for Virgin Atlantic that has the new social space known as The Loft, where passengers can have a drink or dine with friends.

The A350 also has an entirely redesigned upper class suite, with window facing seats and deployable privacy screens.  Entertainment screens will be bigger in each cabin class.
