Virgin Australia International Flights

It used to be that getting on a plane was every bit as exciting as where you were going to get off and Virgin Australia has built a fresh new airline on a simple idea: that flying should be something great again. Once you experience our attentive in-flight service, boutique bars, gourmet meals, generous legroom, state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment, and unique mood lighting, we’re sure you’ll agree, we’ve put the style back into travel.
With a fleet of brand new aircraft, experience why flying on board Virgin Australia International is flying in style:
  • The widest and most comfortable seats across the Pacific with extra legroom to stretch out.
  • Two in-flight boutique bars.
  • Catch up on the latest movies and music with RED, the latest in on-demand entertainment.
  • Lighten up with our unique mood lighting to match the different phases of your flight.


From the minute you arrive in Virgin Australia’s International Economy, our Cabin Crew will immediately make you feel welcome and right at home. Our ergonomically designed economy seats are the widest across the Pacific and you can feel the difference with the 3-3-3 seat plan. Stretch out those weary pins with 32 inches of legroom and when you need to grab some shut-eye, you can lie back with a 6 inch recline and settle in with a comfort pack. When the ride is over, we’ll even understand if you don’t want to get off.

In a very short time JetBlue Airways has become one of America's favorite airlines with its unusually good service and comfortable planes.

JetBlue operates a one-cabin system that has neither business or first class, but, most planes have far more legroom than most coach cabins, each seat has a built-in audio-video system with live DirecTV and 100 channels of XM Satellite Radio, and many planes now offer free Wi-Fi. Snacks and soft drinks are free on all flights and alcoholic beverages are available for purchase.
