Virgin Extends Premium Economy

Virgin Atlantic Airways is extending its Premium Economy sale fares from the US to London, starting at $806 plus taxes round-trip from New York, and continues to offer a flexible change policy for those passengers concerned with the Middle East crisis.
John Riordan, Vice President, Marketing said:“Premium Economy is ideal for those cost-conscious business travelers, for whom Economy travel is mandated, or leisure travelers looking for that extra comfort, as it provides a separate check-in, private cabin, six inches of extra legroom, headrests, legrests and priority baggage handling. Premium Economy is a unique enhanced Economy product that Virgin Atlantic introduced over ten years ago, and has now become an industry benchmark for transatlantic travel due to its popularity.”
