Virgin Atlantic said it “is putting a spring into customers’ steps” with a revised in-flight menu to be launched on April 5.
Some of the “mouth-watering” dishes to be served include one-off additions for Easter and for the coronation of King Charles III in the UK.
The “much-loved” Whispering Angel rose wine will be served to upper class customers, along with lobster and crab tortellini, vegetarian poke bowl and a “classic” Pimms summer pudding.
Elsewhere in the cabin, premium customers “will have a tough time”, the carrier said, when it comes to choosing between chicken pie and spinach & ricotta tortellini with sage butter sauce, roasted pumpkin and caper panko crumb, before savouring a “heavenly” passionfruit and mango cheesecake for dessert.
Economy passengers can look forward to honey barbecue chicken thigh with Portuguese rice and steamed vegetables, as well as a farfalle pasta in a spinach ricotta cheese and roasted garlic sauce.
The Easter weekend will see “luscious” Cocoba chocolate lollies loaded in all cabins on flights departing the UK for the US and Caribbean
A month later, all passengers departing the UK for the US and Caribbean will get a packet of “specially created Joe & Seph’s Kings Coronation raspberry and white chocolate coated popcorn” to mark the crowning of King Charles III, with upper class flyers getting the added option of sipping from a mini bottle of champagne.
Upper and premium guests will be treated to a “special Mile High Tea” of sandwiches, scones and patisseries.
“At Virgin Atlantic we’re always working to create unique and personal experiences for our customers, and delicious dishes and refreshments never go unnoticed,” said Corneel Koster, chief customer and operating officer.
