Love it when airlines load new aircraft and seatmaps into the GDS before the product is actually launched! Courtesy of ExpertFlyer here is the seatmap for Virgin Atlantic's new 'Upper Class' business class cabin on the A350-1000. As you can see it's a 1-2-1 config which implies this will either be angled herringbone-style seating like VA and CX, or forward-facing seating like QF and EK.

Given DL control of VS, you'd think product will be very similar to the J product on the DL A359s.

Agreed. And with an enclosed suite like Delta One, they'll have an edge over BA. even with their new CW product.

I'm going to play spoiler and suggest that Virgin may go for a slightly more compact product than the Delta One Suites.

Couldn't it still be the same as the current setup as it doesn't show the angle of the seat? Hope not though.
