Virgin Australia cabin crew cop abuse as two-minute noodles offered to business class passengers

Virgin Australia has been busted giving two-minute noodles to its business class, forcing the airline into an embarrassing explanation.

Frequent flyers were outraged by the meal, describing it as “appalling”.
