Hello Hollywood, Here Comes Melbourne!
Our very own Scott Swift, Executive General Manager, shares the behind the scenes stories and even some photos of the fabulous Melbourne to Los Angeles launch.
The stars turned out in their droves to support V Australia’s MEL-LAX launch last week with a gaggle of Aussie celebs joining the inaugural flight including actors Vince Colosimo, Tim Campbell, Pippa Black, musicians Axle Whitehead and Jacob Butler, Balinese Princess Lindy Klim and of course the fabulous V Australia crew.
There was mid-air jamming sessions and plenty of fun and laughter on board the flight to LA before the big event at Chateau Marmont the evening we all arrived.
Among the crowd were Sophie Monk, Yeardley Smith (aka Lisa Simpson), True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten, Julian McMahon, Twilight’s Kellan Lutz, Jamie Durie and an array of former Neighbours stars now based in LA. They rocked the night away with the help of Human Nature who flew in from their sell-out show in Las Vegas to give some Motown lovin’ to the V Australia party goers and had the entire room dancing away. Guests also enjoyed Aussie fare including party pies and lamingtons to stay true to our Aussie roots and the V Australia crew proved a huge hit with the Guests as always. It was truly a fantastic event for our special celebrity guests, our corporate guests and industry friends and highlighted to LA that V Australia is the best choice for trans-Pacific flights.
