Virgin Atlantic is currently improving its in-flight food and beverage offerings. A new onboard cuisine will be available in all cabins, with a pre-order option for Upper-Class passengers returning.
Virgin Atlantic had already unveiled a brand-new menu across its entire network on April 1st. Hot Smoked Salmon, Truffle Butter Breaded Chicken, Garlic Ginger Prawn Curry, Fig and Goat’s Cheese Tart accompanied by a delicious Passionfruit and Chocolate Dome or a Warm Apple and Blackberry Crumble are among the dishes on this new menu that aim to offer a balance of British home comforts as well as destination-inspired dishes. I’m delighted to see the reintroduction of Virgin’s hot desserts, which were always one of my favorite aspects of their onboard service.
To top it off, good British cheese is available to pair with Port. Garlic and Stir-Fried Oriental Chicken, Chicken Achari Curry, and Pork and Parmesan Meatballs, all available on specific routes, are additional Upper-Class options. Who’s hungry now that they’ve read that?
With Virgin Atlantic’s new wine merchant partner Jeroboams, the food menu will be complemented with a redesigned Upper-Class wine selection. In addition, a new spring/summer drink menu will be available in the Upper class.
From 1st April, improvements to the airline’s Mile High Tea were made. Warm scones and finger sandwiches will be served to all Economy and Premium passengers, while those in Virgin Atlantic’s Upper-Class cabin will be served burgers, superfood salads, and crab cakes, as well as cream tea. In Economy, a new cake will be offered, while in Premium, a new pair of tiny patisseries will be accessible.
Upper-Class passengers on outgoing flights from the UK will be able to pre-order their in-flight meals between 72 and 24 hours prior to departure beginning in mid-April. This was once available, but because of the pandemic, it was deleted in March 2020.
Customers traveling from Belfast, Edinburgh, Heathrow, and Manchester will be able to choose their menu options on a pre-select platform. Customers traveling in Premium will be able to use the pre-select option by the summer.
British Airways, on the other hand, has yet to reinstate pre-ordering and will continue to offer the single tray service in Club World until November.
Virgin Atlantic’s Chief Customer and Operating Officer, Corneel Koster, said: “We’re incredibly pleased to announce an enhanced food and drinks service on board, which brings a personalized, unique Virgin Atlantic experience for every one of our customers.
“Creating magical moments for our customers is what we do best; delighting them from the moment they step onboard to when they land into their destination. We are all about creating memorable moments for our customers and will continue to develop our inflight offer, while travel moves forward, and many more customers take to the sky once more.”
