The trans-Atlantic airline is launching a new and improved Upper Class Suite, complete with a crew that's easy on the ears.

Virgin Atlantic's newest addition to First Class is taking customers (down) to a whole new level.

The Virgin Atlantic Upper Class Suite flight crew is being trained in the art of whispering. In a day-long training session, the staff will be learn how to whisper at the proper decibel level, (between 20 and 30 decibels is ideal), how to speak with the right tone and feeling, and how to intuitively assess a passengers' needs. The new program is designed to allow passengers the most restful travel possible, free from noisy interruptions or intrusions from the crew. Virgin Atlantic owner, Sir Richard Branson, hopes this new conscientious approach to in-flight service will soothe and relax customers, allowing for the most restful flight experience possible.
