Virgin Australia Launches New Business Class Cabin

Virgin Australia has unveiled its new International Business Class cabin, with the first of its refitted Boeing 777-300ER aircraft now flying across the Pacific. The airline’s flagship Business Class product “The Business”, new Business Class Bar and Lounge, and refreshed Premium cabin are set to enhance traveller experiences on long haul flights from Australia to Los Angeles and Abu Dhabi.

Key features of “The Business” on Virgin Australia’s Boeing 777-300ER aircraft include 37 individual and private suites which can convert into the length of a queen size bed at 80 inches; reverse herringbone cabin layout, maximising privacy and enabling direct aisle access in a 1-2-1 configuration; generous side console areas providing ample spaces; customised triple-layer seat cushions supported by hammock sub-frames; and turndown services with memory foam mattress toppers and high-grade cotton pillows and doonas.

For dinging experiences, passengers can enjoy Luke Mangan-designed menus paired with premium wines. Cocktail and canapé service is offered prior to the first meal service with a choice of Bellini, Kir Royale or Mimosa cocktails. The new Business Class Bar and Lounge will open after the first meal service, offering a selection of bites, beers, wines and spirits.

The airline has also unveiled major improvements to its Premium Economy cabin, which has been renamed “Premium”, and now features 24 seats with more legroom than any other Australian airline. Key features include plated meal services inspired by Business Class; cocktail and movie snack service each hour throughout the flight; and amenity packs with luxurious blankets, pillows and skincare products. www.virginaustralia.com
