HAS ANYONE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH VIRGIN AUSTRALIA?

I RECENTLY TRIED BOOKING SEATS SYD/BALLINA AND WAS ADVISED THERE ARE NO BUSINESS CLASS SEATS ON THE FLIGHT, IS THIS HAPPENING ELSEWHERE?

If they are using a 737-700 then there is a chance that there won't be business seats. This will be the case until the fleet is retrofitted.

QAN have also removed a number of afternoon flights in Nov between east and west coasts without explaination. From experience these are mostly full so it's not a demand problem.

Agree. I frequently fly the routes to central Qld which are usually operated nowdays by the 737-700 or Alliance aircraft that do not have business class. Makes the task of achieving status credits for Platinum renewal bit more of a challenge I must say !

Not only the 737. Flew Perth Adelaide yesterday on a Virgin A320 ex Tigerair with no business class or economy X except for the exit rows. It is operated by VARA and runs several times over the weekends.
