Virgin Atlantic rolls out the red carpet for its 25th Anniversary
On hand was a roster of celebrity attendees including airline founder Sir Richard himself as well as Samuel L. Jackson and some surprise musical acts (more on that shortly). Upon arrival, guests were invited to land a virtual Virgin Atlantic plane on the party's flight simulator, play free old-school 1980's arcade games, and plop themselves down in models of Virgin's comfy business class seating arrangements. Upstairs was an open-air roofdeck with panoramic views of downtown Manhattan and the Hudson River. As the evening ramped up, attendees were treated to a surprise private concert by 80's pop star Deniece Williams as well as some bombastic DJ moves by Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim.
