deli at the virgin clubhouse
virgin is the best airline in the world. i'm always amazed at how much this brand is constantly pushing the envelope to make the experience simpler and more stylish for customers.
i'm writing this post from the virgin clubhouse at LHR. the limo picked me up from the japanese consulate as my visa took a whole week to process (cheers to the indian passport!) and i didn't get back my passport with the japanese visa till this morning. the drive to heathrow was a breeze as the roads were pretty empty - it's half-term at schools. i had a drive through check-in at the airport and then got through fast track to arrive at the trendy clubhouse in t3.
i love the virgin lounge. you can get your nails done, sip a martini, indulge in a massage, surf the web wirelessly and help yourself to fantastic free food all day long. i ordered a demi baguette sandwich with cheese and grainy mustard. i really enjoyed biting into the fennel, sesame and poppy seeds in the bread. i also drank a mug of freshly squeezed orange juice which had fresh mint leaves. the light snack and refreshing beverage put me in just the right mood for my twelve hour flight to tokyo. got to run for my back massage before my flight is called. hasta manana!
