Which has the better business class offerings? I will be flying monthly (domestic business, PER > BNE) in 2018 and it's time to accrue status with one or the other. Will fly internationally on occasion but not as much. PER > BNE on QANTAS is $2000-$2200 and on VIRGIN $999-$1399. Why the price difference? I haven't flown VA business class before, and have done a few QF business class flights. Help! Common sense says pay the lower fare (I'm the Director of a company so I'm paying) but I'm suspicious by the extreme difference in prices. So all you regular flyers... which gives better service, QF or VA? I'm particularly interested in 1. food, 2. seats, 3. in flight service. Thanks for any pro tips.

I have never flown Virgin J (i did in economy last year and the product for Virgin walking past looked great) but live on Qantas and other Oneworld carrier planes (21 weeks of travel a year). I am loyal to the red roo but their product except for the revamped A330 suites is redundant and not ahead of the game. I hear great things about the Virgin product, young, modern and fresh.

more demand for qantas seats is the reason for the price difference.

On the Perth to East Coast widebodies, the two are VERY comparable in product and service, with Virgin being my preference. Make sure they are widebodies though - I don't think VA operates an A330 to Brisbane, in which case a Qantas A330 vs Virgin 737 is a definite win for Qantas.

When it comes to the A330 product, I'd take either but when it comes to their 737s, it depends.

You can't use Velocity points to book Air Canada flights just yet.
