Sonicstate staff keep smiling despite sitting next to the Virgin Atlantic toilet
A selection of acoustic and electric guitars will be on display in the Clubhouseâ€™s Sky Lounge and every Friday - Sunday and Pete Southern from Gibson Guitar, will be offering lessons to Upper Class passengers between 5pm-9pm.
Alison Copus, Director of Marketing for Virgin Atlantic told us, â€œGibson Guitar is legendary and we are delighted to offer lessons to our Upper Class passengers on these celebrated instruments, especially by a master guitar player like Pete. I am sure we have some frustrated rock gods amongst our Upper Class passengers, so it should go down well.â€�
Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO of Gibson had this to say, â€œGibson Guitar is proud to be teaming up with Virgin Atlantic to offer its Upper Class passengers the opportunity to learn a new riff or chord sequence before taking off. Playing the guitar is a great way to unwind before a long flight and we look forward to many more opportunities with Virgin Atlantic in the future.â€�
Virgin Atlantic Airways opened its new Â£11m flagship business class lounge at Heathrow in March 2006. The Clubhouse, which is over 2,500 square metres in total, has been designed to feel like a private membersâ€™ club and has set new standards for the industry with the first spa pool, steam room and sauna in an airline lounge.
OK, Mr Branson, now that weâ€™ve published your press release, can we be upgraded next time we fly? Free drinks would be cool...
