Appears to be only a revised home-page like AA. Once you get into the actual booking system it's the old VS, isn't it?

They're in the process of updating it page by page. A fair few info pages (baggage etc) are in new lay out. Parts of the flying club pages are too. Looks pretty good. It'll be good when its fully completed, a massive improvement.

It is much better than their old website. It was a much needed upgrade.

A list of all the updated pages thus far is available on this page...

Big improvement, though the background images aren't particularly high res so look a bit cheap on a 23" screen. Having said that, I like very much. Quite similar to the new VA website, but more sophisticated feeling.

In the PDF about the new service upgrade in Upper Class I found this picture.

Virgin


The young ladies of Virgin will now tour the cabin with 3 bottles of wine strapped to the forearm in a small crate.

Which marketing Guru thought that one up. The one that does not have to do it.

Been updating it page by page since about August/September time. Not seen the front page in the new style before though.

Quoting scanorama (Reply 3):

Custom font, although i found 'lane narrow' to be about the closest available for download at the moment. Not perfect though.
