Virgin to offer gambling on some of its flights.
Virgin Atlantic Airways announced on 18 January that first-class passengers aboard its Airbus A380 superjumbo aircraft will be able to use numerous facilities.
The passengers will be able to work out in the gym, get a makeover, gamble in a casino, go to the bar and sleep in a double bed, said the carrier.
Some of the Boeing 747s in Virgin's existing fleet are equipped with double beds for first-class passengers, as well as bars.
The A380 can reportedly carry 555 passengers in a three-class cabin and provides more cabin space for other amenities.
