To celebrate the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, Virgin Atlantic have organised street parties for passengers and crew onboard flights to the US and Caribbean on the same day.

The Royal Wedding Will Be Celebrated At 35,000 Feet

Flights departing for the sunshine state on the 29th will have their economy and premium economy decked out in bunting with Union Jack headrests. Passengers will be offered afternoon tea complete with English tea and wedding cake, served in a souvenir Union Jack lunchbox. Virgin Atlantic ‘wedding guests’ will also receive William and Kate themed love hearts and ice cream during the flight.

The upper class cabins will also be decorated with Union Jack bunting and wedding favours and wedding cake will be available at the upper class bar.

All flights will have a ‘dressing up’ box available for crew to use to add to the royal occasion. Head of in-flight services, Simon Soni stated “We are hoping that these extra special touches will make the flight really memorable.”
