Virgin Australia Passenger Seat Tip

Embraer 170/190

If possible, try and get a seat in the first three rows, as these have more legroom. Note that these seats are only available on full flights, as at other times they are classed as premium economy (hence the extra legroom). This also allows a quick exiting of the plane when arriving at your destination. Unlike on the 737s, Embraers are only unloaded from the front door, so being at the back of the plane has no real advantage to it.

Boeing 737

I always go for the rear rows - either 30/29/28 as Virgin Blue 99% of the time have disembarking available via the rear stairs. This means that you're one of the first off the plane - something which is not available in the middle rows. Also, I normally find people don't chose these seats as there is a stigma about being near the toilets and the myth that 'the rear of the plane is more bumpy' (I have never had an issue with either of those) and therefore you're more likely to have the whole row to yourself. The same applies to Virgin's Embraer Jets as well.



Virgin Australia Passenger Seat Tip

Boeing 737-700/800

Row 14 is an emergency exit but not classed as Blue Zone as the seats don't recline, however the seat pitch makes up for the non reclining seat and is worth requesting. The 737 700 bulk head seats D/E/F have exrta legroom and are not classed as Blue zone.

Boeing 737-70/800

On the 700, avoid row 11 and on the 800 avoid row 13 as these rows are in front on the emergency exit row and do not recline.

Boeing 737

If you want a window seat and you use the Blue Check (self-check in at the airport) or the Web Check-in, and if you are travelling on the 737-700 (24 rows), an odd numbered row behind the wing (eg 19, 21 or 23) will give you two windows to look out of. It you are travelling on the 737-800 (30 rows), an even numbered row behind the wing (20, 22, 24, 26 or 30) will also give you two windows to look out of.

Airbus A320

Blue Zone seating is worth the extra AUD$30.00 per trip. [Not per leg] Put in a request for Row 1 ABC DEF, perfect for last in first out! Seats in Row 1 and 12 are the best for extra leg room. Classed as "Blue Zone" seats, they are excellent and worth the extra $50 if flying more than 2 hrs.
