People are eager to start traveling again. However, the international travel landscape is still daunting, confusing, and muddled. With restrictions lifting and changing daily, it can be difficult to decide where to venture after two years at home. However, one destination that has made things clear cut is the United Kingdom. They have removed all COVID related travel restrictions; anyone, regardless of vaccination status, is able to enter without mandatory testing or quarantine. So, if you are looking to make your international travel experience as stress-free as possible, book a ticket in Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class.Flying Virgin Atlantic Upper Class from BostonVirgin Atlantic offers nonstop service from the US to London’s Heathrow airport via lots of major hubs including Boston, New York City, Washington DC, Atlanta, and Miami. And while the brand offers a nice mix of options for all budgets when it comes to cabin classes, Upper Class is the way to go if you are looking for a truly stress free first trip back to Europe this Spring or Summer.The perks of Upper Class start even before you check in—feel free to pack heavy—two checked bags weighing up to 32kg are complimentary and you are sure to breeze through check in and security with priority access to both.But the real fun starts when you board the plane. The mood lighting, music and upbeat staff set the tone from the get-go, and when you arrive at your seat, you will be delighted to find your own pod offering both privacy and access to the rest of the cabin. Your seat offers plenty of adjustability when you want to dine, work, or enjoy the inflight entertainment and when it is time to rest, converts into a 180 degree lie flat bed.Dining in Upper ClassWhen it comes to dining, expect to be delighted. You are welcomed onboard with a glass a bubbly, then an aperitif before dinner, a three-course meal and have the option for lots of other snacks and goodies if you find yourself craving something as the flight cruises through the night. And 90-minutes before landing in Heathrow you will enjoy a full English breakfast.The fun doesn’t stop when you land in Heathrow, if you need to hit the ground running and have a little time before your first meeting, stop by the Arrivals Lounge. This is outside security in the Arrivals Hall and offers guests the chance to shower, have a meal or even a drink before starting their day in London.Upper Class Wing in HeathrowNow once it is time to finally head back home, one of the biggest perks of flying Upper Class becomes apparent. Passengers in Virgin’s Upper Class or Delta One are able to skip the worst part of the airport—the hectic, sea of people that is the departure hall pre-security at Heathrow, which just so happens to be one of the busiest airports in the world. There is a separate “Upper Class Wing” at Heathrow Terminal 3. As your car pulls up, there will be someone to greet you and help with luggage as you stroll to the check in desk. From there you walk around the corner to a strangely empty security line. It is like checking in at private airport, and yet you are flying commercial. Once you pass security you are just a few steps away from the Virgin Club House from where you get to enjoy as much or as little food and drink as your heart desires until it’s time to leisurely jet back to the US. This is about as hassle free as flying internationally can be these days!Prices vary, but don’t forget to check if you have miles to use as well to book a seat in Virgin Upper Class! Virgin is a member of the SkyTeam alliance, so seats can be booked via their partner carriers including Delta, Air France, KLM and many more as well!For more travel ideas on what to do once you arrive in London read our blog post on staying at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park.
