Virgin Business Class Flight: $183 MEL → Tassie, $185 Bris ↔ Rockhampton, Less than $200 Bris ↔ Mackay & More @ Beat That Flight

170

Lockdown's affected a lot of travel, but it looks like Virgin's changed/slashed a lot of their business class fares in response, and one interesting aspect is if you book more than 28 days in advance, they're really a lot cheaper. So we've checked a bunch of mostly intra-state routes. Great way to get some status credits if you need them too!

Note: note just the below routes, feel free to search any Virgin domestic route. Also note that if all they days of the week aren't showing below, it's an ozb formatting error - [click to the main link to see the full table].

All flights usually include 2x32 bags of checked luggage, and 2x7kg for carry on.

Obviously check the state of the borders and the Virgin Cancellation policy before you make any bookings.

    Besides being able to afford to, what really is the point of going business class instead of econ for short trips like these?
    I've always only considered business class for flights to overseas where hours would be 8+ hours or more or where the flight is overnight. Most people sit on an office chair the size of an economy seat forom 9-5 anyways.

      For some, the luggage addition, others their company pays so get lounge access and for others, status credits - it's a much faster way to get to and retain status. For others - just fun to try (my first J flight was on my birthday years ago as a self-treat).

        Ah I see how those things can be of value for others, thanks for the response :)

          Good for fast track.

      You have to spend the money somewhere?

      Agree, better spent on extra trips… Waste of money.

      •  

        Except at this stage people are making fewer trips, not extra ones. Good luck with that.

      Also good for the "wider" gentleman. ;-)

      More space away from other people. This is a huge perk for me, I've flown 3 times in my life and was bullied on two trips (by different girls). I know it's unlikely to have a 100% rate but what can I say, I attract the wrong kinda attention :(

    Some of these shorter first class flights are a bit like taking a limo to your mate's place up the street.

      *business, not first class. But still like an Uber Lux :)

      •  

        So even worse

    •  

      Yeah, it’s like less than 1.5hours

    Good for 60kg luggage on snow trips. Otherwise book an economy+ buy lounge pass from the classifieds.

    nice effort… but it will most likely go ..$200 business class flight with the savings going to the unplanned $3000 on hotel quarantine…

    Sigh what's the point even, trying to plan around lockdowns in VIC is a nightmare.

    •  

      Not just Vic.

    Lol do they refund when you can’t fly or do you wear it?

    •  

      I believe VA refund via Travelbank, just voucher, can’t get your cash back.
