Virgin to operate A330 on Washington route

14 Aug 2012 by BusinessTraveller

Virgin Atlantic is to replace its A340 aircraft serving the London-Washington route with a new A330 aircraft featuring the carrier’s latest Upper Class seat.

Business Traveller was alerted to the news by industry website, and Virgin’s online reservation system shows a three-class Airbus A330-300 aircraft operating daily service VS021 and VS022 from October 28.

Virgin took delivery of its first two-class A330 aircraft last year (see online news April 1, 2011), with the first three-class A330 joining the fleet in April this year (see online news April 23).

The three-class aircraft features Virgin’s revamped Upper Class offering, with a longer and wider bed, and a larger onboard bar. For a review of this seat on the carrier’s London to New York route, click here.
