Guests stopping by Virgin Australia’s domestic lounges are in for a treat over the coming months with new dishes added to the airline’s ‘pop-up dining’ menu.
But there’s no sure way of getting your hands on these tasty treats – they’ll appear around the country at various times between now and August, and the airline won’t be drawn on anything more definitive.
If they’re on offer when you’re next relaxing the lounge, you’ll find chicken sliders with sliced red onion waiting for you, served with chipotle sauce for an added kick…
… followed by Reuben sandwiches with corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing on rye bread:
A favourite remains from Virgin Australia’s previous pop-up dining menu: roast Peking duck pancakes served with the customary cucumber, spring onion and hoisin sauce…
… and another new addition to finish things off: churros with chocolate sauce.
“We introduced the pop-up menu to surprise our Velocity Frequent Flyer members with some great new menu items when they visit our lounges,’’ a Virgin Australia spokesperson told Australian Business Traveller.
“The pop-up menu has been very popular and we are confident that our lounge guests will love these additions.’’
Virgin Australia’s previous pop-up menus have included dumplings and sushi, along with Christmas-themed delights over the holidays.
