Win a business class trip on Virgin Australia

LATEST | We have a winner! Congratulations to Glenn Gilliard, who along with a friend will be winging his way from Sydney to Perth (and back) in business class on Virgin Australia's superb Airbus A330 Coast to Coast service.

This contest is now closed – but we've got another great reader competition coming up next month, so watch this space!

PREVIOUS | Virgin Australia’s Coast to Coast Airbus A330 flights have set a new benchmark for domestic business travel, with international-grade service to Perth from Sydney, Melbourne and soon Brisbane.

Now, thanks to Virgin Australia, Australian Business Traveller readers can win two business class return tickets between Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane and Perth on the award-winning service.

You’ll be sitting pretty in Australia’s best domestic business class seat – a lie-flat luxury leather seat and legroom to spare – and enjoy superb meals chosen by superchef Luke Mangan while you relax with the on-demand entertainment system.

To enter, just fill out the form below and share in 25 words or less why you’d like to fly on Virgin Australia’s Airbus A330 Coast to Coast service.

The contest is open to residents of Australia aged 16 years and over. Entries close at 11.59pm EST on Sunday 21 April 2013, and the winner will be announced on Australian Business Traveller on Monday 22 April 2013 (click here to read the full terms & conditions).

    AusBT, I think jimmyair is saying that if his entry is chosen as the winner you should ignore it and choose somebody else. :P

    I reckon the chance to score two free return trips on the best Australian Business class product( In fact is there a better domestic Business class seat in the world?) would be considered news.

    Sure - Glenn wrote "Love traveling on wide-bodied planes, especially between Syd and Perth. Plus Business class legroom is a godsend for 6 feet tall people like me!".

    Lining up another great contest for next month, fingers crossed!

    Damn. I'm 6ft 6 - If I'd had put in the same entry, would I have won by a margin of height?! ;)
