Business Class on V Australia

by Jessica  

Once you learn that V Australia is part of the Virgin group of airlines, you may already know enough to assume that Business Class on V Australia is going to be quite nice. V Australia is part of the Virgin Blue branch of Virgin, and it’s based in Sydney, Australia. Virgin Blue is a budget carrier, and V Australia is the long-haul airline in the family. V Australia offers flights to Australia from Los Angeles, Johannesburg, Phuket, and Fiji.

Since V Australia is used solely for international flights, calling it “International Business Class” might seem redundant, but all the classes on V Australia have “international” in the name. Despite being an upper class, there is actually a middle seat in V Australia Business Class – it’s a 2-3-2 configuration. Other than that noticeable difference from most Business Class cabin configurations, V Australia’s Business Class cabin is exceptional.
