Any inside knowledge from any one on the the guest list for the sneak preview of Virgins new Upper Class?6 Feb 2012
Would be nice if the window seats actually faced the windows. Found this cool link to, which i think is when they designed the current UC.
I wouldnt be surprised if they even fitted a seat similar seat to the new CX business.
Apparently they used to give on board treatments i wonder if that will return? What would others like to see/have?

In kmy experience Becky, they came round asked your preference and said they would not get round to everyone and then you never saw them again unless you were elite VS FF. It was more marketing hype than substance.20 Feb 2012
The onboard treatments were something of a gimmick.
Often lead to disappointment if the therapist didn’t get around to you.
I think I ended up with a treatment 50% of the time, which I was happy with.
But it was quite pointless on the overnights as you’d have to be woken for the treatment and even if not woken, there was always the potential of being disturbed as a fellow traveller was roused or settled back into their seat.
I’m a big fan of VS on the ground, but in the air the hard Upper Class product is decidedly business class in feel and execution.
I’d hope they’d change some of the curious material used in the current Upper Class Suite; they chip easily and the diamonte features on the cabin walls look dated.
I was going to fly VS next month for a change; on checking their timetable, it appears they only serve this particular destination seasonally. Result = kerching for BA 😉20 Feb 2012
TBF you shouldnt say that because most people who fly BA cant always get a treatment in the lounge anyway. Perhaps they can just offer them on day flights. If i was going to NY and arriving early evening and had an evening function that night getting my nails done on board would be great!! xx20 Feb 2012
Well, the problem with only offering them on day flights would be the wasted therapy station on the overnight, which could otherwise have accommodated a fare paying passenger.
And then what to do with the therapist herself, who has to fly back to London for the day flight…….20 Feb 2012
Easy only do a quiet and short treatments like manicure, pedicure or express facials avoiding body massages or have a station that can convert in to a normal seat or she can helpout as an extra crew member. Otherwise convert the whole of the upper deck on 747 in to a spa with treatment rooms and charge per treatment x20 Feb 2012
Why not just stop by a beauty parlour when you land or do it in lounge like BA try to? Cannot see this one working.
If you try and charge all the posters will be on this threaad saying I am Gold, how dare they, everything must be free for me…20 Feb 2012
I just put a modern movie on and fall asleep. There is something to be said for remakes with no acting and dialog just special effects zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz20 Feb 2012
Oh Please… do not start me on snoring…….. As everyone knows I prefer AA to BA what I do not understnad is why BA FIrst passengers snore and break wind as Olympians. I have had to use ear plugs and drape blankets over my suite to cut out the noise of snorers and I have been disgusted byt the breaking of wind. Too much curry I suppose.
I am sorry (shows i am Englsih huh?) but I was brought up not to inconvenience others. People who cannot sleep without sounding like a subway train or breaking wind every thirty seconds should visit a medical professional before they fly again. It is abominabke how inconsiderate people can make others suffer.20 Feb 2012
