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!

charles branson,ceo of virgin,is a charismatic personality and a super ceo.once dismissed as 'aaltu phaltu' and a brat upstart, he has disproved all his critics and with leadership and vision made virgin what it is today.i am not all surprised.which other ceo will have the humility to travel with the famous dabbawallas of mumbai to learn a few tips from them on six sigma quality and service? please go to my archives and visit the posting on charles branson. i read in some magazine that he was planning to provide a shower in the aircraft itself!

Interesting story. When a big event happens many people like to travel in style with the best chaueffer services they can find. That is why they look at getting limousine London for the big day. Proms, weddings, and even just a party night out so they look like a big shot it is a big deal to roll up in a limo and have the driver open the door for you.
