OK, so it harks back a bit to the ‘I’m Mandy, fly me’ days of selling your airline on the fact that the stewardesses are hot, but then with Virgin Atlantic they really ARE hot (even the guys, especially the one with the beard who gave us great, erm, after service once we’d arrived in New York that time).
And besides, the new ad to celebrate the quarter century with its flavours of an old Robert Palmer video is funny and sexy and nostalgic (Our Price records! Wimpy bars! Mobile phones so big you could probably ride them!). It even – dare we say it – gives us a little patriotic flutter deep withinside of ourselves.
Whatever, we personally wouldn’t fly with anyone else. Unless we were going somewhere they didn’t fly, obviously, or had managed to bag a free ticket on another airline.
Anyways, see it for yourself over the jumpsy…
