At Virgin Atlantic we’re proud to be one of the few airlines that selects their own movie and TV content – it’s all chosen by us, just for you.
Look out for anything labelled “Vera Loves” – that means we think it’s the best of the best. Each month we use the Vera Loves stamp of approval to highlight the entertainment we wouldn’t want you to miss.
We might champion actors or musicians to watch out for, new or unusual filming techniques, right through to massive blockbusters. Whatever you choose, you can be sure that it’s been picked with passion.
Remember, this is just a small taste of the huge amount of TV shows you'll find onboard.
Just a note: as we have different types of entertainment systems on our aircraft, the line up may vary.
Not only does she take the starring role (and is brilliant – Emmy-nominated, no less) but Pamela Adlon also devised this US comedy, basing single mum and struggling actor Sam Fox on herself. It’s raw and insightful – and very, very funny.
Bros: After the Screaming Stops
This brilliant film of the 2017 Bros reunion caused a storm on social media for its unintentional comedy and epic arguments. At root, though, it’s a touching film about two brothers working to repair their broken relationship.
Escape at Dannemora
Directed by Ben Stiller and based on a true story, this acclaimed mini series stars Patricia Arquette as a prison worker who becomes entangled with two inmates (Benicio Del Toro and Paul Dano), who in turn see her as a means of escape.
The always-brilliant Anna Paquin is the star of this new series set among the dark arts of PR. She plays a publicist working in the celebrity-hungry London PR world who while great at her job (natch) is a complete self-saboteur when to comes to her tangled personal life.
Fleabag: Series 2
Written by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge as an angry, confused and occasionally immoral singleton making her way in London, Fleabag is funny, sad, gasp-inducing, but most of all must-see TV. We have episodes from the superlative season two onboard.
Gregory Porter: One Night Only
Concentrating mainly on songs from his most recent album, Nat King Cole & Me, as well as fan favourites from Liquid Spirit and Take Me to the Alley, this brilliant concert film sees jazz singer Porter at his very best.
Fashion designer Halston (just ‘Halston’) was behind many signature looks of the 1970s, befriending Andy Warhol and Liza Minnelli in the process. This documentary tells of his rise and fall, and is not only a fascinating look at the era, but a salutary business tale.
I Am The Night
Based on author Fauna Hodel’s true-life account of her involvement in the 1947 Black Dahlia murder case, this mini-series stars India Eisley as Fauna, who teams up with Jay (Chris Pine) to investigate and ultimately reveal the shocking secrets of her past…
This truly tense, gripping documentary features amazing archive footage to tell the story of a commercial diver stranded on the seabed with five minutes of oxygen left – but with no chance of rescue for more than 30 minutes.
Minding the Gap
Three teens bond in order to escape volatile families, with skateboarding their route of choice, in director Bing Lui’s acclaimed documentary. What emerges is a film about skateboarding that also touches on wider social issues in ways that are both inspiring and affecting.
Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing
What could be better than hanging out with Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse as they shoot the breeze and do a little bit of angling into the bargain? Nothing, as it turns out. This show offering precisely that experience is pure comedy gold.
Parks and Recreation: Season 7
Among the best comedies ever, and one that made stars of Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt and Aubrey Plaza, Parks and Recreation bowed out with a superlative final season, episodes of which are onboard. No doubt about it, all concerned went out on a wonderful high.
New (and, frankly, brilliant) comedy about Marnie (Charly Clive) who has always been plagued by unwelcome sexual thoughts, but with no idea why. That is, until she jumps on a coach to London, where not only does she find answers, but her life changes radically…
One of the few documentaries that truly deserves the tag ‘essential’, this is the work of filmmaker and activist Rob Stewart, who embarked on a dangerous investigation into the mass slaughter of sharks, uncovering a billion dollar scandal in the process.
This Time with Alan Partridge
After a spell with North Norfolk Digital, Alan returns to his spiritual home, the BBC. He’s been asked to co-host weekday magazine show This Time. It’s only intended to be temporary but that won’t stop him trying to capitalise on the opportunity.
Veep: Season 7
Final season of the award-winning comedy series starring Emmy® winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, the former Veep and onetime President who’s looking to get back to the Oval Office as she runs for President, again.
