Taking to the sunny skies, the flight celebrate the LGBT community with a Virgin Atlantic flight from London’s Heathrow Airport to Newark, New Jersey on June 28, 2019.
The flight will be hosted by Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess and the flight will be staffed by LGBT crew and pilots.
Best of all, passengers onboard the flight will be entertained by a DJ and can participate in Drag Queen Bingo, interseat speed dating and, of course, a Judy Garland singalong, according to Travel Pulse.

“We’re not the type of company to mark an occasion like this half-heartedly and we’re going to be pulling out all the stops to ensure the Pride Flight is delivered with a large serving of Virgin flair,” Virgin Atlantic’s Mark Anderson said in a statement. “We take our commitments to diversity and inclusion seriously, but you can rest assured we have a lot of fun along the way. This is going to be a show-stopping, ground-breaking, one-of-a-kind experience that we can’t wait to bring to the skies next June.”
