Virgin Atlantic Launch The UK’s First Ever “Pride Flight”
FYI, it includes a Judy Garland singalong.
Virgin Atlantic have launched an LGBTQ+ only flight ready for pride next year in New York City. Yep, you can be personally chauffeured (is it classed as being ‘chauffeured’ if it’s a plane?) to one of the biggest parties in the world.
The flight will be manned by only LGBTQ+ pilots and crew meaning everyone on board is down with celebrating queer culture from beginning to end, and that includes a Judy garland singalong, obvi.
Not only do you get to partake in some form of karaoke but the flight will be hosted (yeah, this flight’s legit) by Tituss Burgess, hopefully he’ll recreate his iconic lemonade scene from the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. If not, we guess his presence will suffice.
You may also find the partner of your dreams as inter-seat speed dating will take place while you’re thousands of feet in the air, so the guy or gal you’re chatting up can’t escape you let alone not text back. Sorted.
The flight will travel from London to New York City to mark its World Pride event, which is happening in NYC during June 2019.
The Pride celebration will mark 50 years since The Stonewall Uprising – the start of the gay rights movement – and you’ll even get to experience a live DJ set on board your flight to help kick start the party.
Flight-only tickets are on sale now via Virgin Atlantic, or you can purchase a full weekend package via Virgin Holidays.
