Posted on 1 Nov 2018

A one-off ‘Pride flight’ will fly from London to New York ahead of next year’s World Pride event, with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Broadway star Tituss Burgess giving an in-flight performance.
The on-board entertainment will also include a DJ, drag queen bingo, a Judy Garland singalong and inter-seat speed dating. 


The now-sold-out Virgin Atlantic flight, which will be staffed entirely by LGBT+ cabin crew and pilots, is designed to celebrate World Pride 2019. The event is being held in New York City for the first time ever, and will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.
