Virgin Atlantic Airline is offering its customers a see-before-you-buy approach with Planeview, a virtual tour that lets customers view the new Upper Class Suite before purchasing a flight complete with luxury services. The tour of the new suite displays a 360 degree view together with a series of Youtube videos that detail all of the design highlights.

Award-winning spacious leather seats recline 50% more than standard seats and the jet features the longest full flat bed, 87-inch of bed surface, that makes sleeping in the air notably more comfortable.

During longer flights customers want to stretch a bit by walking around. In the new Upper Class Suite customers can visit the futuristic onboard bar and sip fancy cocktails while admiring the glamorous Swarowski crystal curtain.

Passengers are offered a glass of Lanson Black Label Champagne or Bucks Fizz immediately on boarding the plane. During the flight delicious meals are followed by few special surprises.

Virgin Atlantic Airline, famous for its great entertainment services, has taken treating the customers with the newest things even further through introducing each suite with a 12.1. inch touch-screen monitor loaded with JAM, a new entertainment system. To access their personal data, passengers have also a change to connect their phones, tablets and USB sticks.

Other elite accessories include an ottoman storage for passengers to keep everything they need close to them instead of stuffing their things under a seat. AeroMobile system allows receiving and making phone calls as well as sending texts from customers’ mobile phones.

Airlines are ever more keen to attract first class and business class travelers with more and more luxurious services and interiors.
