The updated meal experience on flights features a brand new menu and tries to create a more restaurant-like environment.

Virgin Atlantic has launched a new Economy meal experience featuring a redesigned menu, drinks service, and treats during the in-flight movies. Passengers are offered a welcome cocktail once the plane has reached a comfortable altitude. This refreshing mix of fruit juices is served with or without vodka, in a purple glass with a swizzle stick. You can also choose from the usual selection of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks too.

The upgraded service includes meals presented on smaller, soft-touch, non-slip metal trays that give passengers more space. The trays offer more food and an enhanced selection of produce. The meals have been separated into courses, so after your tray has been cleared you are served a dessert with coffee, tea or, on night flights, hot chocolate.
