In the new Virgin Australia configuration have they decreased the space in Y class like QF has done? I luckily haven't been on the road much lately and haven't tried the product on the new interiors. yet

We haven't even seen the new interiors yet!! No doubt legroom will be closer to what is found in the 737's rather than the 33" they claim today thugh. The thinner setbacks will help to offset this though...

StuParr are you refering to Domestic services or International Long Haul? On Domestic services the seats in Y are between 29" to 31" seat pitch depening on what row and type of aircraft you are in (excluding exit rows) and on the 777 Long Haul services the seats in Y have remained at 32" (excluding exit rows). The seats on the 777's were not reconfigured just recovered and with some much needed extra padding on the seats in J class. Only one 777 has been rebranded so far with the remaining four to be completed by the end of the year. As the 777's are only at the most 3 years old it will be another couple of years before it would be cost effective to do a complete remake.

Hope this helps and Happy Travels

Oh I forgot about the 77W's. I assumed the question was about the new A330 configs...

Hi Jonom,

 

thanks for that. I should have been more specific in my question. I was looking at the new 737's. Thanks for all that information it is much appreciated. I think I will move across to Virgin and see how it goes.

Cheers
