When I flew Virgin business back in December, I was absolutely floored by the pre-departure beverage service. It wasn't merely limited to the obvious stuff like champagne or water but covered a lot of things you wouldn't expect like hot chocolate. Now look, I'm not a heavy J flyer, I've flown a handful of airlines in J before: NZ, AC, UA, LH, BA, AS come to mind. But to the best of my recollection crew on these flights have always only provided a limited subset of drinks. This along with the competitive fares and upgrade options and better on board meal would certainly tempt me towards flying Virgin more often.Virgin had sprits last June in B/C..QF has used Covid to the upmost for cutting anything that looks like service.
Speaking specifically of spirits on QF, I would be curious what is ordinarily on offer flying J with them. Is it the obvious stuff like gin & tonic or do they have their own custom mixes? For instance, SQ has the Singapore sling and UA has their famous Old Fashioned.
