Still spoiling you rotten.
If you're a Flying Club Gold card member, or you're connecting onto Upper Class flights, you'll have access to airport lounges at departure airports, as well as access to limo transfer services.
From 10 September 2014, we will be moving our Little Red operations to Terminal 2 at London Heathrow.
Check in times for our Little Red flights will remain unchanged.
Our Little Red flights arrive and depart from London Heathrow Terminal 1, Manchester Airport Terminal 3, Edinburgh International Airport and Aberdeen International Airport.
If you’re transferring to a Virgin Atlantic longhaul flight at London Heathrow, there's a bus waiting to take you direct from your Little Red (UK domestic) flight to Terminal 3 departures - with no need to go through security.
On your return, follow the purple Flight Connections signs to get the transfer bus to Terminal 1 for your Little Red (UK domestic) flight.
If you’re a Flying Club Gold member or connecting to a Virgin Atlantic long haul flight in Upper Class, we offer priority check in and priority boarding.
We've also secured shared lounges at all short haul destinations:
- MAN - Escape Lounge.
- EDI - Servisair Lounge.
- ABZ - Servisair Lounge.
These lounges are available for passengers holding a Y or J class Little Red ticket, those connecting to/from an Upper Class flight and for Flying Club Gold members.
Following customer feedback, we’re now providing customers with a £10 Costa Coffee voucher card instead of access to the London Heathrow Terminal 1 Servisair lounge. Your voucher is available for collection from the Virgin Atlantic desks at Gate 8 and is redeemable against a wide range of Costa Coffee food and drink.*
*This offer is available to the following customers:
- Fully flexible Y and J class bookings
- Connecting Upper Class customers
- Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Gold members

After breakfast, we’ll serve your choice of cookies or crisps and a full bar service. Scotland’s favourite soft drink, IRN-BRU will be available on our flights to and from Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
