Virgin Australia has unveiled a refreshed Business Class and Economy Class menu, in time for the Australian summer holiday season.
Dishes in the airline’s Business Class menu include chicken tagine, burrito power bowls and new pasta dishes, all served on tableware, including crockery, glassware and cutlery, providing an enhanced inflight experience and further reducing single-use packaging as part of the airline’s continued commitment to sustainability.
Passengers can also select from a large range of summer beverages, including the locally brewed Queensland Green Beacon Tropical Pale Ale, as well as doubling the amount of sparkling wine on board Business Class, following results of a recent customer survey.
The new-look Business Class menu is also available on the airline’s Fiji flights, which took off on 16 December 2021.
Business Class guests will be offered two menu choices on every flight, appropriate to the time of day and length of the flight. Passengers travelling to Fiji will enjoy additional menu offerings including a dessert and snacks throughout the flight.
As part of Virgin Australia’s second iteration of the airline’s successful buy onboard Economy menu, more substantial fresh food items will return to all domestic and international flights, network-wide.
To give travellers more value and greater variety when flying on Virgin Australia, secret fresh food specials will be available on each flight, daily. Virgin Australia cabin crew will table the available fresh menu options at the start of each flight, with wraps, sandwiches and hot pies.
Following customer feedback, the airline now also stocks twice as much sparkling wine in Business Class, and Economy Class customers will be able to purchase a range of pre-mixed cocktails and non-alcoholic offerings.
Virgin Australia Chief Customer and Digital Officer Paul Jones said that the revamped menus will provide customers more value and more choice when they fly with Virgin Australia.
“As we ramp up our services for the summer holiday period, we’re bringing a lot of fun and energy to our new menu, as part of our commitment to creating great customer experiences,” said Jones. “Our new secret Economy menu will revolutionise the buy onboard offering, while providing more value and choice for customers. We’ll continually add fresh options each day from a range of items that we know our guests love – there’ll even be a pie in the sky, literally.”
