You know that thing where your mate's mate gets a free upgrade to first class by simply asking at the airport? Does that actually happen?

For the lucky few there's always travelling on business to get you into the higher echelons of avian comfort, and for the real lucky few there's Virgin's new £100 million Upper Class Cabin.

It boasts a new feature called PlaneView which allows passengers to take a fully immersive virtual tour of the cabin before you fly. Do it now, it's dead good.

PlaneView showcases elements within the cabin via a series of clickable videos including the brand new bar - the longest in the sky - which stretches 2.5 metres and has space to accommodate eight people, bespoke Swarovski crystal curtains adorned with over 1,000 crystals and new cabin mood lighting to create eight separate atmospheres during the flight. Prospective passengers can enjoy a laid-back cocktail at the bar, choose their perfect in-flight movie and even check the overhead storage space – all from the comfort of their own home.

The Upper Class Cabin will also feature Virgin Atlantic’s most sophisticated and comfortable bed to date. We wouldn't be sleeping.

Check out PlaneView right here.
