    Domestic Premium Economy?

    Having never flown Virgin Internationally before, I am booked on VA BNE-LAX-MEL in Premium Economy in a couple of weeks time time, with connections from CBR on VA/DJ (On VA flight numbers) - on the way up to Brisbane i'm booked in "Economy" (which I'm presuming is base level, no bells and/or whistles, no food economy?), but from MEL-CBR i am booked in "Premium Economy".

    I understand that Virgin do not sell Premium Y Domestically anymore, just wondering what I should expect. I am actually looking forward to this trip - mostly because it is full of firsts, not only am I giving Virgin a go over the Pacific, but also using Delta in the states for the first time. Up until this point I have been entirely committed to QF/AA - so I'm kind of looking forward to something new.

    I booked out of BNE to avoid feeling like I missed out on the F lounge in SYD or MEL lol

    Any wisdom much appreciated!

    Matt

    This is the policy for Domestic to International Connections (and vv.) from the DJ website so I guess you would probably be classed as a 'Saver' guest on the domestic sectors

    Premium Economy international long haul guests that connect to or from another service with Virgin Australia, or one of our airline partners, will travel in the following cabin class, depending on the type of service:
    Connecting service (to or from) Class of travel for that service
    Virgin Australia domestic service Economy
    Virgin Australia international short haul service Premium Economy (where available)
    Service operated by a Virgin Australia airline partner Economy

    Re: Domestic Premium Economy?

    Thanks jdevereux3 - That's what I suspected prior to making the booking, however the phone agent was very insistent that I was booked in "Premium Economy" between MEL and CBR, and then the confirmation came as follows:

    Duration Operator Equipment Cabin
    VA1211 1h40m Virgin Australia Embraer 190 Economy class
    Transfer 1h45m
    VA007 13h15m Virgin Australia Intl Boeing 777-300ER Premium Economy class

    Duration Operator Equipment Cabin
    VA012 15h50m Virgin Australia Intl Boeing 777-300ER Premium Economy class
    Transfer 3h00m
    VA267 1h05m Virgin Australia Boeing 737-800 (Winglets) Premium Economy class

    Ahhh - just looked on the emailed booking confirmation, it offers up that CBR-BNE is booked in T, and BNE-LAX-MEL-CBR are booked in O

    T is definitely a discount economy fare with DJ (Domestic & Short Haul Intl). However O is the PE booking class of VA (Long Haul Intl), so this doesn't give up any clues. Take a look at http://www.australianfrequentflyer.c...-dj-35665.html for more info.
