Virgin Atlantic is changing their swimming policy for cabin crews.

My guess is that in order to be a member of an airline’s cabin crew, you need to know how to swim, just in case of an emergency.

When I saw a tweet from Richard Branson about Virgin Atlantic changing their swimming policy, I wondered if it would no long be required to know how to swim. Continue reading Virgin Atlantic Changing Their Cabin Crew Swimming Policy

Virgin Atlantic will become the first airline to offer an adult onesie to “Upper Class” passengers on select flights.

Virgin Atlantic collaborated with original Norwegian onesie designers OnePiece to offer 1,000 passengers a limited edition onesie. They will be made available on select night-time flights across their long haul network. Continue reading New Exclusive Amenity On Virgin Atlantic

I recently wrote about the upcoming season (which has since started) of one of my favorite television show’s, the travel-competition show the Amazing Race. I’ve long been a fan of another reality-competition show too, Survivor which was created by Mark Burnett.
