Economy X now available on board Virgin Australia
Taking over the first three rows of the economy cabin, the new seating option provides extra legroom, designated overhead baggage storage, and priority boarding and security screening.
Economy X replaces Economy Space+ on international flights, and on long haul flights will offer the above, plus premium check-in, guaranteed first meal choice and a premium noise-cancelling headset.
Virgin Australia Airlines group executive John Thomas said he is confident the new option will be well received by guests.
“We know that speed on the ground and space in the air are important to our guests, which is why we’re excited to launch Economy X. Economy X will empower passengers to tailor their travel experience and will give them more choice when they fly,” he said.
Economy X goes on sale today (March 31) for flights from May 21, 2017. The option is free of charge for Velocity Frequent Flyer Platinum members.
