Well, you wait for a new business class and then two come along at once. As you’ll see in Upfront and on pages 44-47, both Virgin Atlantic and British Airways have unveiled new seats – or suites, as all self-respecting business class seats seem to be called these days. Unlike hotels, where suites should generally have a second room to deserve the moniker, it seems that simply adding some kind of door entitles the airlines to declare their product a suite.

virgin atlantic unveils a350 upper class suite

VIRGIN ATLANTIC HAS REVEALED its brand new Upper Class suite, which will launch on the carrier’s forthcoming A350-1000 aircraft this summer. The carrier has moved away from its herringbone layout, in which seats face into the cabin, to a new 1-2-1 configuration with seats angled towards the windows (or aisle in the central row). The seat converts into a bed of up to 82 inches in length and no longer has to be flipped to recline it fully-flat. There is an 18.5-inch screen, and privacy doors that slide halfway across. In place of the bar, Upper Class customers will have access to the new A350 social space, the Loft, which features a 32-inch TV screen that can be connected to headsets via Bluetooth. Premium economy and economy seats have been updated with larger…
