If you’re tired of the snack box, and who isn’t, there’s good news out from Virgin Australia. The long-awaited new Business Class menu has finally arrived.
So, the box is out, and the proper tableware is back. This will see meals served on proper plates, with glassware and cutlery to suit.
As part of the new service, Virgin will provide meals suitable for the time of day. As such, there will be breakfast, lunch, and dinner offerings. The good news is that there are no in-between times, where a light snack or some such is served.
The meals are said to be simple, although high quality. They will also rotate on a bi-monthly basis. Business-class passengers will also be able to indulge in wine, beer, spirits and soft drinks.
