Virgin Australia has revealed its first refitted Boeing 777-300ER to feature the carrier’s newest business class cabin design, currently available on flights between Australia and Los Angeles. The design includes 37 reverse herringbone seats that can convert into fully-flat 80-inch beds, the length of a queen size bed. Arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration, the new layout ensures maximum privacy and aisle access for all passengers and also comes with a slew of new features that include a triple-layer seat cushion and high-grade cotton pillows for added comfort, 18-inch HD in-flight entertainment screens (the largest on flights connecting Australia and North America), as well as a spacious work space and storage area. Virgin Australia has also added a number of new special services for premium passengers, the highlight of which would be the airline’s new on-board bar and lounge area, open after the first meal service. Here, passengers can enjoy everything from hot beverages, wines, cocktails, to easy bites, and they can even opt for a continental breakfast at the bar before the full breakfast service.
“With competition increasing from Australia to North America and the Middle East, we believe this will be the best Business Class on the Pacific, with the product also being introduced to Abu Dhabi later this year,” said Virgin Australia Group CEO John Borghetti. “We have seen customer satisfaction scores increasing to all-time highs after introducing ‘The Business’ domestically on transcontinental routes so we are confident that, with our new Boeing 777 Business Class cabin and refreshed Premium cabin, Virgin Australia will be the number one choice for premium travelers.”
