Virgin Atlantic is to temporarily close all of its Clubhouse lounges.
Upper Class passengers and eligible members of the Virgin Atlantic Flying Club and partner airline programmes will no longer be able to access these lounges.
Virgin’s lounges at Boston, Johannesburg, London Gatwick, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington Dulles are closed.
The lounge at Newark has also closed permanently due to the suspension of the route.
At London Heathrow, the Upper Class Wing and Revivals Lounge has closed.
Services in the Clubhouse lounge at London Heathrow Terminal 3 are reduced with no deli bar, salon & spa or shoe shine service. The bar and the brasserie will remain open. The lounge will close temporarily from Monday 30 March 2020.
The New York JFK Clubhouse lounge will also remain open, but with reduced services.
In terms of alternative arrangements for passengers, all Virgin is said is that passengers at Los Angeles will be able to use the Delta Sky Club.
Services at London Gatwick and Heathrow are expected to return to normal on Monday 1 June.
Lounges outside the UK that have closed are planned to reopen in 5 – 8 weeks.
It goes without saying that in the current climate this is all subject to change.
