Virgin Australia will add Brisbane-Perth to its Airbus A330 Coast to Coast service from 15 May, with two out of three weekday return services be operated by the big bird.
Brisbane-Perth flights currently use smaller Boeing 737-800 planes, which have less space in both business and economy.
In business class, the A330s have either comfortable cradle sleeper type recliner seats or Virgin's newest angled lie-flat seats. That's compared with the standard recliners seen on the 737s.
In economy, the 2-4-2 layout of the A330s alone is a big step up from the 3-3 configuration of the 737s: fewer neighbours means more space and less chance of getting stuck in a middle seat.
Newer A330s also have top-notch on-demand entertainment and USB ports with power to keep your gadgets charged.
Brisbane-Perth schedules: how to find a more comfortable flight
The daily Airbus A330 flights to Perth on weekdays will depart Brisbane at 0845 and 2015, arriving Perth at 1225 and 2355 respectively.
The return services from Perth depart at 1230 and 2245, arriving in Brisbane at 1850 and 0505 (the next morning).
A third weekday return service on a 737, will depart Brisbane at 1730, arriving in Perth at 2125. It'll return from Perth at 0735 and arrive at 1355.
The single weekend A330 flight is on Sunday departing Brisbane at 2015, arriving in Perth at 2355. The return from Perth leaves at 2245, arriving in Brisbane at 0505 the next morning.
"These are complemented on Saturdays and Sundays by the existing Boeing 737 schedule unless stated otherwise," Virgin says.
Tickets for the A330 services go on sale tomorrow.
“We have listened to our guests and we understand that spacious aircraft, comfortable seating, and inclusive catering and entertainment make a real difference on these longer journeys" said Merren McArthur, Virgin Australia Group Executive for Alliances, Network and Yield.
“Brisbane and Perth are important gateways for the resources and tourism industries and we are continually looking for ways to improve the travel experience between these cities.
