First Class Interiors. Friday , May 18th , 2018 - 15:04:33 PM
Three flight attendants were allocated to the 25 passengers in the Business-Class cabin with two working the cabin and one working the galley preparing meals and drinks. Prior to take-off the menus were distributed with passengers having a main course choice of Grilled Chicken Breast served over linguini with pesto Over-baked Crabmeat and Corn Boat offered on rice pilaf or Tortellini filled with mushroom accented by Bechamel and Tomato Basil Sauces. The fasten seat belt sign was turned off about fifteen minutes after our 945PM on-time departure from Santiago and Gloria the In-Charge Flight Attendant walked through the Business-Class cabin and personally introduced herself to each and every passenger welcoming everyone aboard the flight. This was a very nice touch and very impressive. As the flight was full Gloria worked with her colleagues in the coach cabin for the duration of the flight.
The cruiser is intended to combine the experiences of a luxury cruise liner with Richard Branson`s ideas of space travel. Features include a gourmet restaurant spa terraced deck with lap pool resident DJ library bungee jumping platform climbing wall and private mini-offices as well as private suites. Its intended audience is the contemporary traveller who would love to go on a cruise but can`t take the time off work. It will transform an otherwise exhausting and ordinary journey into a positive experience.
At 1015 PM approximately 30 minutes after departure the first drink service started and my travel partner and I enjoyed the flight`s featured cocktail the Iceberg Cosmopolitan (a refreshing mixture of Newfoundland-made Iceberg Vodka mixed with cranberry juice and a splash of Grand Marnier). A small plate of premium nuts was served as well. This was soon after followed by a hot towel service and 45 minutes after departure the Captain had still not welcomed us aboard the flight with a standard flight synopsis announcement. Captain Green made no such announcement on this flight.
