Virgin Australia recently announced its shortened Boeing 737-700 aircrafts will now sport bigger business class seats.
The airline in a statement said that four of its older aircrafts which were not equipped with business class cabins earlier are now being refurbished and will have bigger business class seats.
The airline currently has a number of Boeing 737-800 aircrafts forming the bulk of its fleet. The refurbished Boeing 737-700 aircrafts will be slightly smaller than Boeing 737-800 aircrafts.
The airline has now refurbished its four older Boeing 737-700 aircrafts and installed business class cabins. The cabins will now have big leather business class seats and purple dividers.
Presently, Virgin Australia has a total of seven Boeing 737-700 aircrafts in its fleet. The airline has, however, refurbished only four aircrafts in this fleet equipping business class. The airline uses the aircrafts in this fleet on routes which don’t have adequate passengers to fly in a bigger aircraft.
