Virgin Atlantic flyers, prepare to tantalize your taste buds with Virgin Atlantic’s new Autumn/Winter menu. This new delectable menu showcases a focus on seasonal comfort and destination-inspired dishes.
The Upper class has a variety of mouthwatering options to choose from. Starters include Serrano ham accompanied by roasted squash, pickled red onion, and feta cheese.
If you’re in the mood for poultry, the herb-roasted chicken breast is also available. Seafood lovers can indulge too with roasted trout fillet, while vegetarians can delight in the carrot tartare with whipped ricotta or the spinach and ricotta tortellini.
Additionally, for a heartwarming treat for the Autumn season, Virgin is offering Upper class a spiced apple and parsnip soup.
And for those seeking a plant-based option, the Beyond Burger with pickled onions, vegan cheese, and vegan mayonnaise offers a flavorful alternative.
Extra bites menu
Virgin has also made some additions to its “extra bites menu.” This includes a traditional afternoon tea offering, including a traditional cream tea, accompanied by both a sultana scone and a white chocolate and orange scone, served with clotted cream, morello cherry jam, and lemon curd.
If individuals are craving something savory from the extra bites menu, Virgin is also offering flyers a bao bun with cashew satay chicken or a spiced lamb flatbread to help satisfy those high-altitude cravings.
