Check-in Super-Fast Like A Superstar With Virgin

Posted October 2, 2008 by BookingBuddy

Airportcheckin Does this sound familiar to you—waking up bleary-eyed at 3 a.m., then attempting to get to some forsaken airport to check in for your flight at least two hours before it takes off? (And the airport doesn’t even have the decency to try and be in the world’s top 15 best airports—unless you fly through Manchester Airport.) Many alarm clocks have been destroyed by irate fists in this manner.

Well, good news is on the way for those travelling Upper Class with Virgin Atlantic—you get to sleep in a little bit longer! The airline has cut down the check-in times at Heathrow Airport to a paltry 40 minutes—barely time enough for you to show your passport, dump your bags, and run all the way to the boarding gate. Thinking of grabbing a box of Ferrero Rochers at the duty-free shop? Banish the thought, chocoholics, you might miss your flight!

On the other hand, if you’re not the running sort, you can even drive your limousines (because how else will you be getting to the airport?) all the way up a ramp to a special arrival area.

All this must be good news for alarm clocks, as they need no longer cower under the threat of getting smashed during a 3 a.m. wake-up call. Alarm clock manufacturers might have to start looking at other job options though.
