About Our Blog

Hello gorgeous!

Welcome to the Virgin Atlantic Blog.

We’re here to keep you up-to-date with all the latest happenings at the airline, so come back often if you want to hear about how we’re flying in the face of ordinary!

Get involved

We know you feel as passionately about all things Virgin Atlantic as we do, and we always want to hear what you have to say. This is where you’ll find the lowdown on our people, places, style, experience and future, and we’d love you to share your knowledge, ideas and insight in return.

What’s on your mind?

Use the comments section at the end of each post to give us your thoughts and feedback, tell us about your own experiences, ask questions and pass on your best travel tips – you might just have the answer someone else has been searching for!

Spread the love

You can show your appreciation for posts or comments you find helpful or interesting by clicking ‘V Loves’ – a little way of giving kudos points to the author. Or just share something with your friends via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social channels.

Getting around

It’s easy to find what you’re looking for. Click on a blog category at the left of every page, or use the topics and tags shown within each article to see everything we have on that subject.

Enjoy

Even if you only come here to read articles or search for information, you are essential to making our blog a fun and enlightening place to be. We hope you’ll leave feeling excited about Virgin Atlantic and all your future travels with us!

If you have any suggestions for future posts or topics you’d like us to cover, then we’d love to hear from you. Drop us a line directly at blogeditor@fly.virgin.com.

Virgin Atlantic Blog guidelines

In order to keep things welcoming for everyone, all we ask is that you play by our simple set of guidelines when interacting with others on the blog.

Be nice

Commenting is a great way to connect with others and share your point of view. We love a good debate, but we don’t like personal attacks, flaming, intimidation, bullying or general rudeness. And it goes without saying that we’ll delete anything which could be construed as racist, sexist, homophobic or hate-speech in any other form. We’re all grown ups, so please be respectful, constructive and play nice!

Stay on topic

We understand that people have strong opinions about airlines and travel, but it’s far easier for everyone to follow the conversation if you stick to the topic in hand. If the comments in a ‘New York’s Best Museums’ feature venture into wildly unrelated territory, then we’ll probably guide you to a more appropriate place to continue your discussion.

Be aware

Think before you share and don’t hand out personal information about yourself or anyone else. This means no phone numbers, email or home addresses or any other private stuff.

Don’t spam!

By spam, we mean comments that are clearly only made to advertise and link back to your own site, product, service or affiliate offer. These comments will be deleted, as will any illegal content.

By all means leave a link to something that genuinely adds to the conversation, but make sure you explain the context. Otherwise we may assume that it’s spam and delete it.

Get In touch

We’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback on any aspect of the blog so if you want to get in touch, drop us a line on blogeditor@fly.virgin.com.

Virgin Atlantic reserves the right to update or amend these guidelines at any time without notice.
