News: free Happy Socks for Virgin Atlantic passengers and Opodo flight discount codes

The socks which are often given out as part of business class amenity kits are generally dreadful.  I don’t think anyone would deny that.

Virgin Atlantic has teamed up with trendy sock retailer Happy Socks to launch a substantially upgraded model – see below:

Unfortunately these will not be available to everyone.  They are only going to be given to passengers flying in Upper Class on selected ex-airberlin A330-200 aircraft (probably as a trade off for not having an Upper Class bar!).  They will be available to purchase via in-flight retail by all other passengers.
