    Virgin Australia E190 Business Class

    I discovered the following on Virgin Australia's business class page.

    Virgin Australia's Business Class | Virgin Australia

    Embraer E190 Business class seat features include:
    • Luxury leather
    • Generous recline
    • 34 inch (85cm) seat pitch
    There is also a blurb about entertainment and comfort packs.

    Does anyone know if there will be new seats, or are Virgin Australia re-labelling premium economy seats as business?

    No idea. But that seat pitch doesnt look any different.

    That's the seat pitch Embraer offers for Business/Premium/First class. Any E-Jet with a premium cabin has a seat pitch of 34''.

    Re: Virgin Australia E190 Business Class

    Airlines with 1x2 front cabin seating on Embraers typically have 36" pitch (these airlines also have a different over-head bin configuration in the front section, which is skewed to match this seat layout).

    e.g. on Delta E175's

    e.g. on USAirways

    Has anyone seen an official announcement from Virgin that it plans a refit to introduce "this version" of business class to its E-Jets?

    Re: Virgin Australia E190 Business Class

    I have a feeling that due to the different overhead bin configuration that it cant be retrofited. So I think we can expect a 'EuroBusines' or 'BusinessLite' seating similar to QF's 734 A/C with full business service. I would expect a discount on routes operated by E90 A/C where 73H A/C ALSO operate. e.g. CNS-BNE, CNS-SYD, TSV-BNE, MKY-BNE, SYD-OOL, ADL-MEL ...

    Re: Virgin Australia E190 Business Class

    Somebody pointed out the blurb on the VA website to me the other day, funny they don't include a seat map unlike other aircraft.

    I'd say they are keeping the seating config (1-2 or 2-2) under lock and key until the first aircraft has been refitted. A bit like the A330 2-3-2 vs 2-2-2 configuration earlier this year.

    IMO They'd be crazy not to have 1-2 for a proper J cabin.

    Re: Virgin Australia E190 Business Class

    Well whatever they do, it had better be significant. I dont think anyone will be too thrilled about buying a J ticket to find a hot omelette is the point of difference costing $400 odd extra.

    If you ask me the US airways pictured above looks a bit crappola for a J cabin. Wow! I get to sit in the same seats this side of a curtain. I feel so special...

    The BA ejets J seating is identical to the Y cabin. Probably because they alter the configuration depending on the route. But the flights are so short you hardly notice it. It's not like you're crammed in to the embraers.
