International Long Haul  - Premium

There are times when a journey warrants that something special; a touch of indulgence that takes you to another place. For these times, there’s Virgin Australia’s Premium experience on-board our B777 aircraft.  

With more legroom than any other Australian airline and an intimate cabin that enhances our award-winning service, you’ll arrive at your destination feeling on top of the world.


  • Generous 41” seat pitch and 9” recline
  • 10.6” Seatback In-flight entertainment screen and noise cancelling headset
  • In-seat electrical power and USB connectivity


Relax with luxurious pillows and blankets, as you settle in for a cosy night’s sleep. And when you wake, refresh with REN Skincare products and a luxury Mandarina Duck amenity kit.

Food & Beverage

Premium guests enjoy a champagne cocktail and canapés served before take-off and in-flight can indulge in A La Carte cuisine, plated on fine dining crockery and hand-delivered to your seat. Fine wines and liqueurs have also been selected to complement the menu, served in elegant glassware.

During your flight, call on your dedicated Virgin Australia Cabin Crew for a perfectly brewed Nespresso coffee, refreshing Madame Flavour tea or help yourself to our abundant self-serve Premium Pantry featuring a range of beverages and light refreshments.   


Premium guests enjoy seatback in-flight entertainment via a 10.6 inch touch screen and noise cancelling headset. Our seatback entertainment system has an extensive range of new release and classic movies, TV favourites, engaging games, mood-satisfying music and much more.
