Virgin Atlantic Airways is an airline founded by Sir Richard Branson, head of the Virgin Group. Based in the United Kingdom, it operates long-haul routes around the globe.
A role model for all
Richard Branson is quite the innovator. When I’m on a Virgin Atlantic plane, I can look forward to friendly service and an enjoyable flight. They provide complimentary hospitality packets for long flights to make passengers feel comfortable all the way to their destination. I love the bright cheerful colors and the best part is Virgin cares about the environment with their option to offset carbon emissions! Comfort, relaxation, and environmentally aware, Virgin is a role model for all airplane competitors.

Forget everything you know about flying
When Virgin Atlantic asks you to forget everything you know about flying, they have a point to prove. Flying their Upper Class Suite is the most sensuous experience; an experience I look forward to after the sterile and stressful environments of most airports. When I buy a seat on Virgin Atlantic, I buy a luxurious place in the sky as well as on the ground.

I go 2000 miles out of my way to fly VA
Romancing The Flyer VA’s Upper Class service is second to none. Being a Brit, and marrying a girl from America, I spent several years frequently crossing the Atlantic. The journey was a bore until I chose Virgin. They have put the romance from the golden age of flying back into the experience. It takes the stress out of flying completely. It is a wonderful feeling boarding at JFK, popping to the bar for a pre-take off champagne and hearing the English accents of the stewardesses; it makes me feel like I’m home already. I could easily go home on BA from Chicago, but I go 2000 miles out of my way to fly VA, via New York just for this experience. Isn’t that loyalty beyond reason!

How crazy is this?
I've never had a chance to fly Virgin Atlantic yet somehow I feel all other airlines should act like them. How crazy is this? Every time I'm in a VA terminal I find an excuse to walk into their clubhouses because they're so mysterious. Let's just say I have quite a collection of the same brochure!

I wasn't afraid anymore...
I was never afraid of flying, but since the birth of my children something stirred inside of me. A strange feeling came over me - a fear. I think the fear of something happening in the flight, the plane ? I don't know if it's a parents condition to be afraid, but I started to be afraid when our clients told me we had a trip. It's also strange, because I love to travel, to know places, cultures, the different foods. It was a mixture of feelings. I was afraid when I came onboard Virgin Atlantic's 747-400. But when I looked into the blue eyes of that stewardess, and experienced the calm and tranquillity they all convey - I wasn't afraid anymore. I remember the peace of those eyes every time I go on an airplane. Now I even fall asleep.

Created by someone who revels in the five senses
This is the airline that was created by someone who revels in the five senses. Chairs that move at a touch and turn into beds, massage rooms for in-flight rub-downs, sweet smelling soap in the bathrooms, music in your ears and food on call whenever you want it. Branson is a Lovemark who makes Lovemarks with everything he touches.
