Virgin Atlantic continues to notch up its inflight experience! Its latest unveil is a sky-high lounge configuration it calls The Booth, which will be featured on the carrier’s reconfigured “leisure fleet” of Airbus 350-1000 aircraft.
To be launched on select routes flying to popular vacation destinations such as the Caribbean and Orlando, Florida, ‘The Booth’ is encapsulated by two 27″ touch screen monitors, allowing customers a window into fully immersive experiences.
The new seating area will be located behind the Upper-Class cabin at the second set of doors on the Airbus A350-1000. While ‘The Booth’ will evolve over time, its initial content will include a digital art gallery with up-and-coming artists and a tail and belly cam of the aircraft. Additionally, it will also include two Bluetooth audio jacks for customers to connect headsets to the monitor’s audio.
Commenting on it, Corneel Koster, Chief Customer and Operations Officer at Virgin Atlantic, said, “We’re famous for our onboard social spaces, and the introduction of The Booth elevates the customer proposition for our leisure travelers to new heights. We love creating brilliantly different experiences, which is why we’re always evolving our ideas to offer something different and exciting in the air and on the ground.”
He further added, “I’m delighted that we’ve curated The Booth specifically for our customers jetting off on holiday to our sunny destinations, such as Orlando, offering a truly stylish start to their trips.”
Back in 2017, Emirates had also launched a similar service in the form of a revamped business bar on the Airbus A380. As for Virgin Atlantic’s novel service, it will first be offered to customers traveling between Heathrow and Orlando, with the first flight currently scheduled for December 2021.[Via: Simple Flying]
