Virgin Blue Introduces A330 And Business Class

Sun Mar 06, 2011 2:45 am

I was on Virgin Blues facebook page and on one their photo albums is titled "our new class for you"
Heres the photo album description

In a first for Virgin Blue, we will now offer business class on our domestic network, with two new luxury Airbus 330 aircraft travelling between Sydney and Perth starting in May this year, providing a three times daily service from June. Find out more at our blog: http://blog.virginblue.com.au/

Looks like EK's business class!  

And shouldn't this be on the Civil Aviation thread? Or no?
It's a cultural thing.

well since the fb page mainly has to deal with the seat I thought it should go under travel...but yah I guess it could go either way.

Fantastic news. I guess DJ is getting very close to become a full fledged carrier. Any chance they would join Star? It's such a pain to fly around Australia on QF, which is good, and earn miles on OW, which is so sh*tty.

? WHy is it such a pain to fly around Australia on QF,they have a far greater and more frequent flights on most routes. And in my opinion a better product, maybe I have missed something here on my trips around the country in the last year that have taken me from Darwin to all points south

I was wondering wouldn't it better to operate the A330-300 instead since its a high demand route and the range is not required for the route/routes they are using?

I think that the complaint is that flying with QF results in accumulating points with OW and not Star, the poster's preferred alliance. The actual QF product itself isn't being criticised.
