Virgin spends £50m on jets clean-up

Virgin Atlantic is investing more than £50m to spruce up a fleet of the airline's jumbo jets. More than 100 members of staff will spend over 95,000 hours fitting 32,000 new parts to Boeing 747s based at Gatwick airport. 

Seats will be ripped out, carpets replaced, a new in-flight entertainment system installed and the outside of the seven aircraft will be repainted. 

Passengers travelling to holiday destinations such as Orlando, the Caribbean and Las Vegas will be first to travel on the refurbished planes later in the year.
