For those who are living in Europe, like us here, the 787-9 is finally coming to an airline near you, Virgin Atlantic.
To celebrate their ‘Birthday Girl’, Virgin has put together a nice time lapse video of the assembly and livery painting.
The plane will be delivered in October and shall fly the Heathrow-Boston route with an initial three-class configuration of 31 Upper Class, 35 Premium Economy (2-3-2) and 198 Economy seats (3-3-3).
Virgin is promising an enhanced version of its Upper and Premium seats, along with a refresh of the interior. The Wander Wall, a space dedicated to socializing, will make its appearance in the front of the Premium Economy cabin.
The inaugural flight will be a private journey to Atlanta with a in-flight live concert that should be streamed online for all of us.
