    Hey Everyone, continuing the 'Virgin' theme this week, here is a full review for Virgin Australia's new Business Class [​IMG]



    Following the transition from LCC to hybrid carrier, Virgin Blue rebranded as Virgin Australia, launching last month their new Business Class service.

    As I usually fly Virgin Australia when I am back 'down under', I thought the time was ripe to try the great new product. (Plus the great new 737-800 aircraft Virgin has flying to Tasmania.

    Service was amazing, and the new crisp clean cabin added much to the inflight experience. Seat colouring in economy plays off well with the new airline branding, and seat pitch is generous.

    While I appreciated the funky purple Plexiglas cabin divider (*cough* Virgin America), but I felt a bit like an animal in an enclosure, watched by over 150 other passengers... lets just say I prefer the solid curtain [​IMG]

    Tell me what you think in the comments below, would love to hear your opinion [​IMG]

    Nice vid.
    See you got one of the new BSI planes as well.
    (Virgin has also been retrofitting the new Business in its older 737-800s. There are still a few unretrofitted 737-700s running around which will graduallly be returned to the leasing companies over the year.
