Has anyone flown from Perth to Brisbane in the last week in Business Class on the B737?

Just interested to know if the meal has been downgraded or is it much the same.

Hope to find out myself as well on May 26th if all is OK with travel and VA itself.

I travelled on a VA 737 in Business Class last week on the East Coast and received a Muesli Bar instead of a meal however they were still offering beer and wine.

A relative of mine flew Melbourne to Perth in VA 737 business class recently on a breakfast flight. A full meal was served with drinks and snacks, however, they only had a muesli dish with fruit. No hot options. I'm unsure whether this also extends to lunch/dinner flights.

I think they use the term ‘limited meal service' (presumably nothing hot) for Covid 19 safety reasons. Opening up an serving food by hand etc.

Hi Rod H, you've posted a similar question twice, so we've merged the discussion together here. Posts from that other thread can be found below.

So not sure you will be travelling as the administrators won't want anymore debts to accrue. I expect the planes everywhere are locked down pending new and reasonable offers for the airline. As for meals I doubt it. I don't think any catering company would deal with them unless they are paid in cash."

Just did the flight Perth-Melbourne -Brisbane.

The meal was non existent as most posters have stated , just peanuts. Just as well as I got some good advice here and took my own food.

Good thing was there was plenty of red wine so that helped a lot.

Staff were very good indeed and did everything they could to help under the circumstances. Top marks to them for that.

I sincerely hope that whoever takes them over retains the once fabulous Business Class that was second to none!
