Last year, in 2012, the company made a major investment in updating the aircraft interior design for the business class. The new Upper Class is entitled ‘’Dream Suite” and it is the promise of a real first class experience.
The abundance use of the red and purple colors is already a trademark for Virgin Atlantic Upper Class.
The innovation consists in using these colors in a new mood lighting system. The glitter of Virgin aircraft interior design is underlined by the use of Swarovski crystals.
The main attraction is the futuristic onboard bar that has changed orientation. The bar is separated from the cabin and offers new spaces to sit and socialize. It has 2.5 metres and can accommodate up to eight people.
Dream Suite is more spacious than the classic version. Also, each seat has an extra 3,8cm width and folds out to 218cm long. This is the longest lie-flat seat offered by any airline.
The new version kept the window seats unchanged, but came with some innovation for the centre seats. These are disposed in a herringbone layout, arranged mostly in 1-2-1 layout, unlike the 1-1-1 anterior structure. Unlike the traditional herringbone patterns that form a “V” shape, the Virgin Atlantic has a cross-hatch pattern. The company has even patented the new layout.

Another new feature is an opaque window created into the divider between seats. In this way the passengers don’t feel too closed off.
As well as the classic version, each suite has an individual entertainment system. The innovation consists in a larger TV screen of 12.1 inch. The monitor can be controlled by touch, or with a touchscreen handset that is loaded with the new entertainment system, called JAM.
The new aircraft interior design is available on selected A330 flights. New York JFK, Boston, Washington, Delhi and Mumbai are among the main destinations.
With all these features, Dream Suit really deserve its name. It is a travel experience that many people dreams to have. Do you agree?
