Qantas and Virgin Australia are both set to raise the stakes in their business class battle this month, although it's the travellers who seem to be winning.
The last of Virgin Australia's six Airbus A330 jets is being wheeled into the hangar next week for the installation of the airline's latest business class seats, dubbed The Business.

When it takes to the skies by the end of November, Virgin's entire A330 fleet will sport the impressive new seats – delivering a consistent experience for corporate travellers on the east-west route.
The Airbus A330s will be rostered onto all of Virgin's weekday Sydney-Perth and Melbourne-Perth flights, with a mix of the A330 and smaller Boeing 737s shuttling between Brisbane and the WA capital.
Meanwhile the eighth of Qantas' 18 reconfigured domestic A330 jets will also take wing before the month is out, bringing the Flying Kangaroo close to the halfway mark for adding the all-new Business Suite to its local twin-aisle fleet.

(Six red-tailed international A330s also sport the Business Suite and are mainly flying to Singapore, Hong Kong and other Asian cities.)
As the western anchor of the busy transcontinental trek, Perth Airport has also been getting its share of love from both airlines.
August saw Qantas open its first business lounge at Perth's Terminal 4...
... while the terminal itself has also received a swish make-over at the hands of Australian-based global design firm Woods Bagot.
Virgin Australia's turn comes on November 22nd, when the airline moves into the shiny new T1 Domestic Pier.
The airline's new home will feature two new lounges – one for members of Virgin Australia's elite The Club, and another for The Rest Of Us – plus a new fast-track check-in system with kiosks and bag-drop channels.
