Virgin Australia on Monday launched its all-new business class, officially marketed as The Business, which will be rolled out to its entire Airbus A330 fleet (serving transcontinental routes) by the end of October. Employing a reverse herringbone layout, the cabin comes with lie-flat seats arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration and high-definition 16-inch touch screens for passengers to conveniently explore in-flight entertainment options. While designed to ensure maximum privacy, the center suites include a sliding screen that can be opened or closed depending on one’s needs.

Along with the new design, the carrier has improved dining experience for business passengers, implementing a restaurant-style fine dining system where meals will be hand-delivered by flight attendants. Guests are given the option to dine when they want and choose from a menu cooked up by celebrity chef Luke Mangan. Premium Australian wines will be available throughout the flight.

For coffee lovers, Virgin Australia also announced on Monday a new partnership with Nespresso. The agreement will ensure business class cabins are equipped with the world’s first Nespresso by B/E Aerospace machine, offering passengers high-quality coffee up in the sky. Different coffee blends will be available on board, namely the Ristretto Intenso, Espresso Forte, and the Espresso Decaffeinato blends.
