• In fact the B747-400 is not the largest Private Jet in the world .There is an A380 fitted out for Prince Al-Waleed of Saudi Arabia for a mere $500 USD.Exceptionally lavish interior which is mainly yellow colour to represent gold.Lots of gold plated fittings well, the Sultan of Brunei had gold pla...

  • patrickk.There's a lot of quite reasonable food already packaged that would and should be offered.Surely paying a J fare and getting a small packet of peanuts could not in any way be justified given so many other options..I sincerely hope that if VA do continue after June 11th whilst waiting for...

  • As I have already mentioned in a previous thread I flew VA Perth-Melbourne-Brisbane Last Tuesday in Business.Everything Brandon has said re. Boarding, on board and arriving is correct.My big disappointment was the complete lack of food. The snack that's offered is just a packet of peanuts, that'...

  • The B747 depicted looks very nice but certainly not spectacular.In stark contrast the Sultan's B747 was incredibly spectacular and luxurious.Either way wouldn't it be nice to be able to afford one and have the money to operate it??

  • Both VA and QF have Government subsidies to run these limited schedules.To protect their crew they will not serve normal meals in any class and the Govt wouldn't pay for meals as well I reckon.This is only until the Govt. subsidy ceases on June 11th , as far as I know.Hence my comment that if the...

    Sad as it may seem I think that what Tasclean has said is looking quite likely.I sure hope it's not the outcome because if it is then it's the end of VA.One can only hope that there is a way around this for all of the staff's sake and the travelling public .If VA fails then a certain Irish fellow...

    Whilst I am no longer a Velocity Elite ( used to be Platinum a while ago ) I will not fly Business with VA until things settle down and normal on board service is resumed and clarified. We wont know for a while yet just what on board service if any VA's new business Class will be like so given t...

  • What do you miss from Virgin Blue?

    May 27, 2020, 02:36 PM

    Not anything at all.

  • 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...

  • 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.
