Virgin Atlantic Will Not Install ‘Kisses’

Virgin Atlantic recently opened its new Clubhouse at JFK’s
state-of-the-art Terminal 4. As one of the more quirky features of the
lounge, the airline had planned to install two unique “Kisses” urinals in
the Clubhouse restroom, designed by a Dutch-based company, Bathroom Mania.
In response to the public’s concerns about the design, the airline has
decided not to move forward with the installation of these urinals in the
bathroom. John Riordan, Vice President of Customer Services, said:

“Everyone at Virgin Atlantic was very sorry to hear of people’s concerns
about the design of the “Kisses” urinals to be fitted into our clubhouse
at JFK airport. We can assure everyone who complained to us that no
offence was ever intended.”

“The urinals were intended to be one of the more fun and quirky features
of the new JFK Clubhouse, a project overseen by Virgin’s in-house design
team led by two female designers. The urinals themselves were the idea of
a female designer and we were therefore surprised by the reaction.”

“However, Virgin Atlantic always aims to listen to our passengers and the
general public and as a result we will not install the urinals in the
bathroom at our new JFK clubhouse.”
