PaxEx: Virgin Atlantic Unveils New Autumn Menu Across all Cabins

As Virgin Atlantic ramps up services to popular destinations such as San Francisco and Cape Town, the airline has evolved its onboard options with new Autumn menus including the re-introduction of some Upper Class favourites as well as all-new sustainable wine in cans for Premium and Economy – all available onboard this month.

Upper Class customers will see the return of Virgin Atlantic’s famous cocktails and barista-style coffees, Supper service, and Extra Bite menu, as well as enhanced menu options. New starters available 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.

Premium updates see new antipasti plate as a starter followed by an autumnal venison stew, spicy jerk chicken or vegan penne Bolognese, and finally a delicious dessert option of a New York-style cheesecake. Customers looking for a warming mid-flight pick me up will also be pleased to learn that the hot chocolate service has returned across all cabins.

As part of Virgin Atlantic’s commitment to reducing waste, Premium and Economy customers will be trialling the service of Nice Drinks Sauvignon Blanc or Argentinian Malbec as part of the complimentary wine service. The cans are 100% recyclable, plastic-free and a more sustainable, lighter-weight option than wine bottles. Nice Drinks will be available onboard from late October.
