Bei Virgin Atlantic feiert man den Abschied von der Queen of the Skies …
Nicht nur den A380 geht es an den Kragen, auch die 747 werden vielfach in Ruhestand geschickt. Virgin Atlantic hat sich für den Abschied ein cooles Event ausgedacht. Im Hanger wird bei einem Event eine 747 zu einem Restaurant.
“As the airline’s fleet of jumbos are retired to make way for a younger, more sustainable fleet of A350-1000s and B787-9s, Virgin Atlantic is allowing fans one final fix inside the Queen of the Skies. Hosted at the airline’s Heathrow hangar on 12th December, visitors will experience a full aircraft tour, where they can delve below deck to explore areas of the plane the public rarely see, as well as a enjoy a sumptuous three course on-board meal. Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to The Trussell Trust.
Virgin Atlantic pilots, cabin crew and engineers who have worked on the 747 will be present to provide first-hand accounts and anecdotes on what life was like on-board the famous jumbo jet. In what’s set to be the gift of a lifetime for plane buffs, guests will enjoy a three hour all-encompassing 747 experience, where they will;
Sip champagne on the aircraft’s upper deck, fondly known as ‘the bubble.’
Savour a luxurious, three course a-la-carte meal, inspired by Virgin Atlantic’s on-board cuisine, from the comfort of their own Upper Class suite.
Hear first-hand what life was like at the controls of the queen of the skies from the airline’s pilots, including Yvonne Kershaw, the first female pilot to Captain the 747.
Take a hidden tour to the parts of the aircraft the public don’t usually see. Visit where the cabin crew and pilots sleep, delve into in aircraft’s underbelly, explore the cargo hold and take a seat in the cockpit.
Have a photo taken in one of the aircraft’s iconic red engines, as a memento from the day.
Health and safety is Virgin Atlantic’s absolute priority, so due to Covid restrictions and to allow for social distancing, only a limited number of tickets are available for purchase. These will be allocated on a first come first serve basis via https://virg.in/747experience from 9am on Monday 7th December. Each ticket is priced at £50 with all donations going to the Trussell Trust. The Trussell Trust support a network of food banks and provide emergency food and support and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.”
