Food and Beverage
We've made every effort to ensure our onboard menu has something for everyone. Savour the best in fresh and local produce, complemented by a discerning selection of Australian wines and liqueurs.
Our bar also offers a selection of beverages for Premium Economy guests to enjoy during the flight.
For Premium Economy guests travelling on our Boeing 777 international long haul service, our award-winning in-flight entertainment system Red is yours to enjoy for the flight.
