On Wednesday (October 20, 2021), Virgin Atlantic announced the introduction of new autumn menus across all cabins. Upper glass guests will enjoy an elevated service with an enhanced choice of starters and desserts, and Supper service will return with the signature Extra Bite Burger, cocktails and barista style coffees. Premium guests will be treated to new antipasti plates as well as enhanced desserts, and hot chocolate service will be reintroduced across all cabins. As part of the company’s commitment to sustainability, Virgin Atlantic will introduce wine in cans from emerging UK startup, Nice Drinks, which will be available in Premium and Economy Class.

In Wednesday’s announcement, Virgin Atlantic’s Chief Customer and Operating Officer, Corneel Koster, said,

“At Virgin Atlantic we know that the travelling experience is about so much more than just getting from A to B. As restrictions continue to ease and customers return to the skies, we’ve introduced some exciting new Autumn menu options, and reintroduced onboard favourites and little touches that make all the difference in enhancing the flying experience for our customers. We’re also proud to be making changes in line with our commitment to offering a more sustainable service, by trialing recyclable wine in cans from Nice Drinks.

“Those joining us on board for the first time since the pandemic can rest assured knowing that health and safety remains top of mind, ensuring that everyone flies safe and well with Virgin Atlantic. We cannot wait to welcome our customers back on board, flying them safely and in style, on a well-deserved holiday or to reunite and reconnect with loved ones, colleagues, business partners or customers.”

New Upper Class starters include a pear and Waldorf salad or smoked duck breast followed by a main choice of braised pork cheek, roasted trout fillet or vegan spiced cauliflower pie. The updated Premium menu includes a new antipasti plate starter, followed by an autumnal venison stew, spicy jerk chicken or vegan penne Bolognese. For dessert, premium guests will enjoy the option of a New York Style cheesecake.
