Works Deluxe. You’ll enjoy Premium check-in, priority baggage with 2 checked-in bags (up to 23kg each), a carry-on bag (up to 7kg) and access to our award winning lounges before your flight. In the air, you'll be seated at the front of the economy cabin with more personal space - great if you want to work or stretch out. If you're travelling on our larger 777 or 789 aircraft you'll be seated in our Premium Economy cabin!

Inflight entertainment without the interruptions

During your flight, you’ll be entertained with movies, games, music and TV shows through our gate-to-gate, seat-back entertainment. Please note that if you are flying on a Virgin Australia operated flight, a Wireless Inflight Entertainment that streams content to your own portable device onboard is used. To use this service you'll need to download and activate Virgin Australia’s Inflight Entertainment app for iPhone and iPod touch, iPad or Android device prior to travel.

Alternatively, Virgin Australia has a limited number of Inflight Entertainment Tablets available on selected flights for use by eligible guests. On some flights you can use the Tablet to access Wireless Inflight Entertainment; on others, the Tablet offers a pre-loaded selection of movies, TV shows and music.

Make a meal of it

With the Works Deluxe option, you will receive full meal and beverage options plus an addtional treat, bottle of mineral water, newspaper and premium headphones. After you’ve enjoyed your meal, you have the choice of ordering extra drinks free of charge during your flight. When you book your flight you are able to request a vegetarian or gluten intolerant meal. If you’re travelling with kids, you can request a Kids Meal at the time of booking, which comes with an activity pack on Air New Zealand operated flights only. Please note that if a special meal is not requested when making your booking a standard meal will be provided.

Works Deluxe will be our top product choice on our A320 aircraft. If you’re flying on our 767 or 777 aircraft, Business Class is also available, in addition to Works Deluxe.
