 Virgin Atlantic Airways Upper Class Suite review
Virgin Atlantic's previous Upper Class cabin provided an excellent quality experience, but suffered in comparison to BA by not having lie-flat sleeper seats.
Virgin's lie-flat seat is a relative latecomer, but this has worked to their advantage, because they have been able to draw from the positive and negative features of past designs of sleeper seat and then, adding a dash of innovative flair, come up with something very different and perhaps very much better, too.
But with Virgin, instead of numbering the first row downstairs as row 1, they do this for the first row upstairs, and this is not a good row to be in.
