Virgin Atlantic: Your airline's either got it or it hasn't

Virgin Atlantic today launches its first ever global TV campaign as it looks to strengthen its recovery from recession and reinforce the airline's ‘it’ factor. The airline will be airing the £6m TV campaign in the UK, and for the first time ever, in cities across the United States, including New York, Washington, Boston, San Francisco and LA. Featuring the strap-line ‘Your airline’s either got it or it hasn’t,’ the campaign takes the viewer on a metaphorical flight with Virgin Atlantic - guiding them through a surreal and glamorous world of airline iconography and dramatising how it feels to fly with Virgin Atlantic.

Excellent. Cinema. Superb. Small complaint: could live without the one-liner at the end.

Random, to me. Nothing that gave me the sense Virgin was anything more than a pop and fizzle.

no need for the cheap gag at the end...

James Bond intro feeling indeed. Somehow I like it. The gag is not needed I agree, although the whole spot has a light self-irony thing to it so a gag doesn't hurt that much.
