    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!

    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

    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:

    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
