British billionaire, Richard Branson has declared war on Quantas and other rival airlines with the launch of his new fleet of V Australia passenger jets to fly the Australia-US route. The showman who never shies away from creating a media spectacle, braved wind and rain to walk out on the wing of a new V Australia Boeing 777-300ER jet with Australian celebrities Julian McMahon, Jason Clarke, Holly Valance and Kimberley Joseph.
The business class seats of V Australia fall under the category of luxurious aircrafts. This is what Sir Branson said while talking about the business class seats on the new plane. Inside the Branson’s V Australia, air travelers can enjoy the boutique-style luxury and indulge in a new level of in-flight comfort. You can enjoy vegemite and lamingtons on board. In business class, a miniature version of the Opera House stores salt and pepper, and in case you want to go to bathroom, you get complementary thongs.
The business class comes with a fully stocked bar and a lavish gold color scheme. You can choose from a selection of gourmet foods and Australian wines. When you need a nap, the crew members transform your chair into a 1.95-meter-long bed with a duvet, pillow, set of pajamas and a Bulgari amenities kit.
When asked about recession the Branson said, “The way to get out of recessions is try to expand out of recessions and create more jobs, bring airfares down and try to offer better quality of products.” V Australia will begin its Sydney-LA flights on February 27 and Brisbane-LA on April 8. Traveling by economy class in V Australia will also leave a lasting impression on the mind. The economy cabin has a three-three-three seat plan, with a funky retro look with bright colored red and green chairs. The cabin features mood lighting, a self service snack station and on-demand touchscreen entertainment systems and a seat-to-seat chat function. Branson said the public can expect rock bottom fares if there were vacant seats on a V Australia plane prior to takeoff. “We will never go out with an empty seat so if we have an empty seat we will slash the fare,” Branson said. Watch out people we will be having some fair deals coming up.
