It was officially launched late last week at LAX, and will allow customers to jet over the Pacific in the height of luxury on daily, fourteen-hour long flights.

‘The Business’ includes a new Business Class Bar and Lounge, and its set to be installed on all Virgin Australia Boeing 777-300ER aircraft by September of this year, together with a new Premium cabin. Americans are big fans of travelling to the land Down Under; in 2015 the United States was Australia’s fourth biggest inbound market for visitor arrivals, and there was a 10% increase in visitors from the US to Oz last year.
