I have flown with Virgin Atlantic many times and have reviewed their long-haul Premium Economy flights. My trip reports can be found below.
Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy has a 21″ seat width, 38″ leg room, free drinks and free food. What is great is that you get priority boarding, wide reclining chairs with footrest and an enhanced menu offering served on china with stainless steel cutlery. The snack bar on the new 787 aircraft also offers a place to walk to and collect free snacks and drinks on a help yourself basis which we like.
We particularly like that you can book a Premium Economy seat on Virgin Flying Club miles, which you can earn with American Express credit cards. 1 Membership Rewards point = 1 Virgin Flying Club mile and the best free card for earning points and miles is the Amex Gold card (if you are UK based).
If you are US based, you can earn free flights by taking out just one (free) credit card. Read more in our easy guide.
I have compared British Airways Premium Economy Vs Virgin Atlantic’s Premium Economy. I also have reviewed Virgin Atlantic in Upper Class.
When flying in Premium Economy you do not get access to any Virgin Atlantic lounges but if you are flying out of London Heathrow, you can use your Priority Pass or pay to access to the Aspire Lounge In Heathrow Terminal 5 or the Aspire Lounge in Terminal 3.
