Virgin Atlantic is opening the cabin doors to its last Boeing 747 – called Pretty Woman – for the final time, in what’s being billed as ‘the hottest ticket in town for aviation enthusiasts’.
For one day only, the public will be able to purchase tickets for the ‘ultimate 747 experience’, including the opportunity to enjoy a ‘sumptuous’ three-course meal on-board – safely – in Upper Class.
As the airline’s fleet of jumbos is retired to make way for a younger, more sustainable fleet of A350-1000s and B787-9s, Virgin Atlantic is allowing fans one final fix inside the Queen of the Skies.

Hosted at the airline’s Heathrow hangar on December 12, visitors will experience a full tour of the plane – 747-400 G-VROY – during which they can explore areas of the plane the public rarely see, including the cabin crew and pilot bunks, delve into in the aircraft’s underbelly, explore the cargo hold, take a seat in the cockpit and sip Champagne on the upper deck, fondly known as ‘the bubble’.
They will also have a photo taken in one of the aircraft’s iconic red engines as a memento.
