This is a review of the new Virgin Atlantic Upper Class Seats and Cabin that was started to be rolled out across their fleet from 2012.
Also read a full review of Virgin Atlantic Upper Class, the unique check in and lounge at London Heathrow Terminal 3 on Tips for Travellers.
Virgin Atlantic have modernised and updated their Upper Class seats and cabin. It still retains the herringbone layout, so every seat has access to the aisle. But the seats are designed to have more features, including standard plugs for laptops and other devices that take UK, USA and other styles of regular plugs, better in-flight entertainment system and attachments to play cameras and devices via USB connection.
The seat still flips over and makes a very flat and comfortable bed. The side panels now have some glass sctions which makes them feel less enclosed, but still private.
A nice update of something that was working, as the photos show!
