Apart from Singapore Airlines, the best airline I have flown in my 4 million miles, is Virgin Atlantic.
Today, Virgin launched its 25th anniversary celebrations, with a video reflective of its irreverent yet high energy culture.
Virgin’s inaugural flight was from London Gatwick to Newark (EWR) on June 22 1984, at a time when the United Kingdom was in the middle of a miner’s strike. The ad features brands and icons from the period; Our Price record stores, Wimpy fast food, Rubik’s cube, Asteroids video game, braces, frumpy air-mummies, braces, big hairdos and monster brick mobile phones.
“Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood was riding high in the charts, is the theme music for the ad, and should be your mood for the next 90 seconds.
Do you think Virgin is “Still red hot” as the ad claims ? As usual your comments are requested and welcomed.
