In 2min, 90”, 60” and 30” TV and cinema edits and a 2min online version, RKCR/Y&R has adopted a faux movie trailer format that pays homage to the superhero genre. We see Virgin Atlantic Airways staff as children, in possession of special gifts and extraordinary talents, such as gifts of intuitive anticipation, rapid reflexes, creative problem solving, heightened empathy and ultimate passion for flying. These remarkable abilities draw them to join Virgin Atlantic where they can fulfil their potential and become the finest crew, ground staff, designers and pilots resulting in the superior customer experience Virgin Atlantic delivers. An experience that truly flies in the face of ordinary.
The print and outdoor campaign connects the TV execution to the real product and experience Virgin Atlantic delivers across all cabins, presented with heightened reality and again brought to you by Virgin Atlantic staff.
In a world where long haul travel has become homogenised, at best dull & at worst pretty dreadful, Virgin Atlantic wanted to remind people how amazing flying should be. With the right airline, every time you fly can be as amazing as the first.
