The Virgin Atlantic Upper Class Suite is a patented system, which provides passengers with an innovative piece of furniture for sitting and sleeping on, in the form of a chair and separate bed. The aim of the design was to offer passengers similar comfort to that of a luxury lounge or a hotel. The design is visually calm and has a high-quality aesthetic. The basic prerequisites for sitting and sleeping are achieved by the chair's patented mechanism, which changes it from sitting to sleeping mode. The chair can be turned into a bed at the touch of a button. This piece of furniture was developed to offer more than other airlines' business classes. It is the first airline product of its type, which grants the passengers direct access to the aisle. This is achieved by an innovative inward-facing spatial concept in a herringbone pattern.
