Virgin Atlantic Celebrates Those 'Third in Line' with the Royal Treatment


On the day the world congratulates William and Catherine on the arrival of their healthy, happy newborn Virgin Atlantic will commemorate the royal birth by rewarding the third person in line for their flight today with access to the airline’s award-winning Clubhouses.

Whether a passenger checks in online or in person, the third person issued a boarding pass on Virgin Atlantic flights departing San Francisco, Washington Dulles, JFK, Newark or Boston, will receive a guest pass to the Clubhouse for themselves and their party.

“We hope the new royal has many years to wait before taking the throne, but we’re sure they’ll be enjoying the royal treatment from day one,” says Matthew Callard, Head of Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses. “And as they will be  third in line to the throne, we thought it would be fun to surprise the third person in line for their flight with a taste of our Upper Class Clubhouse experience. Each Clubhouse is a unique, relaxing space designed to serve as an oasis for our passengers before their long-haul flight; whether to get some last-minute work done, order from our ever-changing, locally-sourced menus, or sip on a signature cocktail, customers rave about the Virgin Atlantic treatment before they even make it to the aircraft.”

On the day of the royal birth, the third person to check in for their Virgin Atlantic flight from the above airports will receive a Clubhouse invitation for themselves and a guest. Whether they check in online or at the airport, an agent at the bag drop will reward them with their ticket for a ‘royal treatment’ before their flight.
