All Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses worldwide have closed temporarily. The Upper Class Wing and “Revivals” lounge at London Heathrow is also closed.

Virgin has, on Tuesday 25 August, secured creditor support for a financial support of £1.5 billion over the next 18 months. This comprises loans of £200m and £170m by Virgin Group and Davidson Kempner Capital Management as well as cash flow support by Delta and other parties through the deferral and reduction of amounts owed to them.
