A "whispering coach" is quieting flight crews on the British carrier so passengers can sleep.
If you have trouble sleeping on a plane, Virgin Atlantic may be the airline for you.
The British carrier announced last week that it has appointed its first “whispering coach” to teach crews on long-haul flights to speak in tones between 20 and 30 decibels to ensure that snoozing passengers go undisturbed on nighttime flights.
The whispering coach is part of the airline’s campaign to promote its new Upper Class Dream Suites, high-priced lay-flat seats that the airline will roll out this spring on designated routes, including flights between New York and London.
Whispering classes will add an extra day to the training of Virgin Atlantic crew members.
