    Doing some dummy bookings for these routes from the 18th Jan, the 'introductory' prices appear to be matched to premium economy seats.

    'Premium' price jumps from $425 on 17 January to $579 on 18 January. So it seems they're missing the brown 'business' tag that shows on transcon bookings.

    While they’re priced below QF, I would have been quite happy to see the prices remain unchanged

    I wonder how long after this OOL will be included as a BNE/OOL point on the triangle?

    I've no idea on the QF prices, but these are a bit higher than I expected.

    Presumably when they open the lounge, if not before.

    Re: Virgin Australia introduce Business Class - BNE/SYD/MEL

    I noticed that in this press release, and other articles, In-Flight Entertainment was not mentioned in the offerings/service.

    I thought you got one of those crappy digiplayer things? Or is a new IFE on its way before the launch day of business class on the golden triangle?

    Just a thought.

    You gotta remember guys, this is Business Class, not Premium Economy. Prices will then reflect that. Full Business Class service and not just items from the retail cart. Of course prices will reflect that. 
