Two weeks before Virgin Australia begins offering business class on the Trans-Tasman flights between Australia and New Zealand, Qantas has announced that it will be lifting the bar on its own service offering.
From Valentines Day, 14 February, Qantas passengers sitting up front across the Tasman will receive champagne and amenity kits.
The champagne on the service menu will include a selection of Jacquart Cuvee Brut Mosaique NV, Champagne Duval-Leroy Brut NV and NV Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve.
Business customers will also be given amenity kits designed by Kate Spade and Jack Spade on services between Australia and Auckland departing after 6pm.
The Kate Spade (female) and Jack Spade (male) amenity kits include unisex products from New York’s Malin+Goetz – Vitamin E face moisturiser, Neroli hand + body lotion and Lip moisturizer, as well as a toothbrush and toothpaste, eye mask, socks and ear plugs. The amenity kits will be updated with the refreshed Kate and jack Spade designs as the kits continue to roll out across the international network.
Qantas Head of International Customer Experience Kylie Morris said the amenity kits and Champagne were part of Qantas’ ongoing commitment to providing great service and products in its all-inclusive fares.
“We are always looking at new ways to help our customers feel comfortable and have a relaxing and enjoyable flight,” said Ms Morris.
“We are committed to this important market having recently introduced a new Economy dining experience, an improved flying schedule and additional services during peak periods.”
