Inflight Meals

News: Virgin Australia now offer free meals and drinks in economy class.

Virgin Australia make much of their exciting new onboard menu with signature Luke Mangan items.

In Business Class Domestic & Trans-Tasman there is a decent hot meal, and on flights over 3 hours there is a three-course lunch and dinner (but make sure you are on one of these flights, not one class as a mid-morning or afternoon).

On the remaining long-haul international flights to Hong Kong, Abu-Dhabi and Los Angeles, economy meals are free, with two served on the flight, and there are also free drinks throughout the flight.

Duck and Grape

Cold duck slices over a bed of red cabbage, with grapes.

This is just wrong on so many different levels. Cold, poor flavour, and just odd.

Domestic Economy Class - Virgin Australia inflight food

Virgin Australia Domestic Food

On East-West coast transcontinental services, from Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne to Perth there is a free hot meal and one free beer or wine (after midday).

Also on flights from Canberra to Sydney or Melbourne (called Capital Connect flights) there IS a free snack, which is also offered on rural flights in Western Australia (but no beer).

And on flights between the state capitals (Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane) there is one free beer or wine offered between 4pm and 7pm.

The Virgin Australia Menu is in the seat pocket infront of you, however it is not available online, so you can't check out prices before hand.

There are normally two trolleys on the plane, one which starts at the front, and the other at the back. Hence, if you want to get your food first, and have some chance of eating it before you get off the plane, you'll need to sit either right at the front, or right at the back.

Welcome to British Rail catering on Virgin: yes it doesn't get much better than this. This is the famous basic sandwich selection of Virgin Australia: it's pretty grim.

Chicken Sandwich

Chicken and Salad Gourmet Sandwich

If you want to splash out, you can of course go for the Gourmet selection: this really isn't much of an improvement, but at least it looks a lot better.

There is a real bit coleslaw in the sandwich, and the bread is marginally better, with all of $3 added flavour.
