Virgin Atlantic to unveil new autumn menu

Virgin Atlantic will introduce its autumn/winter menu across all cabins from October 4 2023.

The ‘modern and inclusive’ menu is set to offer more vegetarian and plant-based options. Virgin Atlantic will also serve wines, cocktails, matcha and kombucha.

Passengers in Upper class will enjoy serrano ham with roasted squash, pickled red onion and feta cheese, herb roasted chicken breast and roasted trout fillet.

An A La Carte breakfast menu will enable travellers to ‘build their own breakfast’ with yoghurt, fresh fruit, warm pastries and a new range of cereals.

Premium cabin offerings will include chicken lasagne, sage and thyme pork stew and panko coated tofu with katsu vegetable curry. 

Economy Delight passengers can now pre-order entrees, a service already available in Premium and Upper class. Offerings will include a chicken, leek and tarragon casserole and a creamy spinach and butternut pasta, with a side of Cathedral City cheddar, crackers and a Pots & Co plant-based chocolate pot.

Snacks across all cabins have been upgraded, with Walker’s shortbread fingers and vanilla Oreos for Economy, as well as Savoursmiths bubbly and serrano chili crisps and Yumma peach flavoured gummy sweets for Upper class and Premium.

The new menu has been developed with the airline’s catering partner, Gate Gourmet. 

Corneel Koster, Chief Customer and Operating Officer at Virgin Atlantic, said: “We’re delighted to introduce our new onboard menu, marking the return of the season that makes our passengers crave some winter sun. At Virgin Atlantic, we’re always looking to create memorable moments onboard, which is why we strive to offer an unmatched, contemporary and extensive selection of dishes across our cabins.  

“From the addition of wellbeing drinks in Upper Class to the extension of pre-select to Economy Delight, our focus on innovation means our passengers experience nothing short of fantastic service and flavourful food, no matter where they’re travelling to.”
