Back in July, Ausbt ran an exclusive story that Virgin were upgrading their catering domestically in both classes and that an announcement was due by the end of August. Is this still happening because I have eaten all the bite size Carmens muesli bars I care to.

I was thinking this myself last week. I found the story you were referring to and I think the wording was that more details were expected by the end of August. Perhaps they are still trying to decide if they will give us one slice of cucumber or two in our minature sandwich.

Its already happening. On a flight to Canberra today we were given Mainland cheese and crackers instead of the old cardboard wrapped in plastic. The crew noted it was new and that more was coming.It's still not stunning, but it's an improvement.

VA Flight this morning MEL to SYDNEY
No discernible improvement on the routes I have flown in the past two weeks. I flew BNE-MEL at 1655 hours yesterday and received a cookie. For a 2hr 20min flight at dinner time that's a pretty paltry offering.

Returning from Melb on Saturday 1pm, we had a fresh celery dip with some kind of cracker. I was ready to pay $5 for cheese and crackers and this was more than equal. So it looks like some things are changing!
