Instead of sliding backwards, Virgin Atlantic's Upper Class seats fold forwards to turn into a fully flat bed.
A mattress pad, proper pillow and duvet make Virgin Atlantic's seat feel more like a bed.
Each seat is set at an angle, so every passenger has direct access to the aisle. No more clambering over your snoring neighbour.
The extra room around your head and shoulders makes finding a good sleeping position easy.
The ottoman footrest ends up as part of the bed, with a storage cubby beneath.
If you get bored of sitting in your own seat, there's a bar where you can mingle with your fellow Upper Class passengers.
Mood lighting and extra space in the cabin make the whole experience elegant and stylish.
Arriving at the airport early isn't a problem at the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse lounges, which have a definite 60s-chic style. We'd recommend more sensible shoes for flying, though.
The Clubhouses all have bars so you can relax like you've just come straight from a modelling shoot, like this man.
