The issue for you is more do you want to transit AKL and travel transtasman on NZ or take direct out of Oz?

Virgin definantly, they pioneered it, and seem the most interested to win premium Y passengers
|Quoting BCAL (Reply 10):|
Sorry but you are wrong - BA pioneered World Traveller Plus before Virgin copied them and rolled out Premium Economy in February 2000.
|Quoting FlyKev (Reply 11):|
Hmm, Im going to have to disagree with you again BCAL
|Quoting BCAL (Reply 13):|
To refine the question to deal with the thread is, "Which airline was first to offer it between the UK and Australia?" and much as Virgin would wish to claim the title, unfortunately it was BA who offered World Traveller Plus four years before Virgin entered the route.

|Quoting BCAL (Reply 15):|
Someone (maybe spin from Virgin themselves) claimed somewhere that Virgin was the first airline to offer a Y+ service between the UK and Australia. BA flying to SYD before VS has nothing to do with this, but BA offering World Traveller Plus on the route four years before VS started services proves that WTP was first.
