Pacific Blue Flights in the Pacific
NEWS UPDATE: Pacific Blue adds Bali, Indonesia and Honiara in the Solomon Ialnads. Increases NZ flights from Sydney and Melbourne.
Virgin Blue comes in three shades: Virgin Blue - the original low cost Australian carrier offering great value services throughout Australia; Pacific Blue which extends the concept across to New Zealand and the Pacific Islands; and Polynesian Blue which is a joint venture between the airline and the Government of Samoa, feeding passengers from Sydney and Auckland into the capital Apia.
This is a fun airline with Virgin’s typical obsession with great passenger service. If you like stuffy, formal greetings and cabin staff whose smiles are engineered during training then Virgin Blue should be avoided - if, like us, you prefer to travel with cabin crew who enjoy a joke with you (not at you) then climb aboard Virgin Blue - any of the three and enjoy your flight.
