Call ahead for a fast, personalised experience. We want you to enjoy the best of the Upper Class Wing. So it's a good idea to pre-arrange your arrival:
- Call our Upper Class team on 0344 412 4666 if you're a Virgin Atlantic customer or 0808 145 3742 if you're a Delta customer. You can do this between one month and up to two hours before your flight. If you've already checked in online, great. If not, please have your passport to hand so you can check in over the phone.
- You'll need to give the team the full passenger information, flight, checked baggage, vehicle and arrival details of everyone in your party. So please leave plenty of time to give the team the info they need, especially if there's a few of you travelling together.
- When you arrive at London Heathrow, ask your driver to turn left before the usual T3 drop off location, following the 'Virgin Upper Class Wing' sign.
- At the top of the ramp, ask your driver to park in one of the bays.
- A member of our team will meet you with your boarding cards and bag tags, ready to finish check in. And then you can whizz through our Private Security Channel, straight to the Clubhouse.
