Virgin Atlantic has evolved its onboard options with new Autumn menus including the re-introduction of some Upper Class favourites, as well as all new sustainable wine in cans for Premium and Economy.
Upper Class passengers will see the return of cocktails and barista style coffees, Supper service and Extra Bite menu, as well as enhanced menu options. New starters available include a pear and Waldorf salad or smoked duck breast followed by a main choice of braised pork cheek, roasted trout fillet or vegan spiced cauliflower pie.
Premium updates see new antipasti plate as a starter followed by an autumnal venison stew, spicy jerk chicken or vegan penne Bolognese and a dessert option of a New York style cheesecake. Passengers looking for a warming mid-flight pick me up will also be pleased to learn that the hot chocolate service has returned across all cabins.
As part of Virgin Atlantic’s commitment to reducing waste, Premium and Economy passengers will be trialling the service of Nice Drinks Sauvignon Blanc or Argentinian Malbec as part of the complementary wine service. The cans are 100% recyclable, plastic free and a more sustainable, lighter weight option than wine bottles. Nice Drinks will be available on board from late October.
Corneel Koster, chief customer and operating officer at Virgin Atlantic commented: “At Virgin Atlantic we know that the travelling experience is about so much more than just getting from A to B. As restrictions continue to ease and customers return to the skies, we’ve introduced some exciting new Autumn menu options, and reintroduced onboard favourites and little touches that make all the difference in enhancing the flying experience for our customers. We’re also proud to be making changes in line with our commitment to offering a more sustainable service, by trialling recyclable wine in cans from Nice Drinks.
“Those joining us onboard for the first time since the pandemic can rest assured knowing that health and safety remains top of mind, ensuring that everyone flies safe and well with Virgin Atlantic. We cannot wait to welcome our customers back on board, flying them safely and in style, on a well-deserved holiday or to reunite and reconnect with loved ones, colleagues, business partners or customers”.
