It should be remembered that Plane Talking is a personal commentary blog, not recognised by airlines as a legitimate news channel, and therefore kept out of the loop of sanctioned leaks otherwise known as press releases. So anything written there needs to be taken with a gain of you know what. I seem to recall Mr Sandilands being pointedly excluded from the Virgin launches on the grounds he wasnt legitimate press. Accordingly I somehow doubt this lastest comment has anything to substantiate it other than Mr Sandilands best guess. Like all commentators he will sometimes be right and other-times not. Unless it's being published in AusBT (virgin's preferred channel) think you can assume its nothing more than the kind of hearsay one might get in any pub.
I'm sure Virgin will want a bit more press coverage than a blog when they unveil a new product.
