Virgin Australia Reveals Its New Sleek Business Class Cabin
Virgin Airlines has long been in the forefront of offering sleek and comfortable accommodations to its passengers and just revealed its newest business class cabin on Virgin Australia. Called The Business, the new setup will be available on flights that fly to Los Angeles and Abu Dhabi.
Onboard passengers will be able to get up from their seats and mingle at the onboard bar and lounge making 15-hour flights a little less painful. When it comes time to catching some shut-eye, there will be 37 suites available with 80-inch lie-flat beds—that's the equivalent of the length of a queen-sized bed.
It gets better: every suite comes with a triple-layer seat cushion and a hammock sub-frame. You can also add a memory foam mattress topper and high-grade cotton pillows to your area.
In addition each passenger has a personal workspace, storage, and a bedside amenity table to keep electronic devices or magazines within sight (and reach). The airline opted for a herringbone cabin layout, featuring a 1-2-1 configuration, to ensure both privacy and direct aisle access for passengers.
If sleeping isn’t on the schedule, there are plenty of entertainment options to prevent boredom. Movies and TV shows are available on an 18-inch HD touchscreen, which happens to be the largest in-flight entertainment screen flying between Australia and North America.
Along with a selection of snacks, beer, wine, spirits, hot beverages, and petit fours, new meal options will include cocktails and hors d'oeuvres before the first meal, continental breakfast at the bar before a full breakfast is served, or you can eat a full breakfast at the bar instead of a suite.
