Virgin Australia cuts Premium Economy baggage on Trans-Pacific


Virgin Australia has made some changes to their luggage allowance in the Premium Economy cabin on  services between Australia and Los Angeles.

By changes, I mean they have made cuts. The reason they have given for these changes is to align with partner airline Delta.

The changes kick in for tickets purchased from 11 June 2019, and sees a 28% reduction in luggage allowance. While the number of bags you can take stays the same, you will be able to carry less in each bag.

Basically, Virgin Australia are changing the allowance for each bag from 32Kg down to 23Kg. The changes affect passengers across the board – for members with no Velocity status through to Velocity Platinum members.

Silver, Gold and Platinum members are seeing their allowance cut from three 32Kg bags down to three 23Kg bags. All up, that reduces your overall allowance by 27Kg.

In the case of passengers that are Red Velocity members, or are not members of Velocity, the allowance is changing from two 32kg bags to two 23kg bags.

The following chart shows the changes that are coming into effect from 11 June.
