In a class of its own

Premium Economy

As always, it's the little things that make the difference.

Those extra few inches of space, a welcome glass of bubbly and after dinner liqueur, a proper workspace with in seat laptop power and a delicious meal served on china with stainless steel cutlery.

They might be little things, but they make your flight even more enjoyable.

Premium comfort

Our big, wide, purple leather seats are really comfortable. They have a 38in pitch, a headrest, leg rest and lumbar support. They’re just like a comfy armchair.

As always, it's the little things that make the difference.  

Those few inches that turn a seat into a space.  The special touch of a welcome glass of bubbly.  A proper workspace when you need it, and a real knife and fork with your meal.  

Little things, perhaps, but they all matter to you.  That's why they matter to us.  And that's why you fly Premium Economy with Virgin Atlantic.
