Does anybody know if Virgin have been given the all clear to start operating their A330's? I thought they start this week, with a few AFF'ers due to fly her ...

    Virgin's A330s still right to start flying this week?

    Does anybody know if Virgin have been given the all clear to start operating their A330's? I thought they start this week, with a few AFF'ers due to fly her MEL-SYD on Saturday.

    I think a second bird should have arrived by now? Does anybody know if it has?

    Maybe if any Virgin rep could fill us in?

    Thanks,

    LR.

    I believe they have been given the all clear! The second aircraft is also in country.

    As far as I am aware Virgin received CASA approval for the A330 flights about 10 days ago so I assume they will start as planned on the 26th,
    As for aircraft they currently have two A330's,those being VH-XFA and XFB,they have two new 737's in the new livery VH_YFC and YFE,the next one VH-YFF has just undergone first flight test at Puget Sound so it should be here soon,I also hear that we can expect the first ATR to be delivered quite soon as well.
    Cheers

    Off topic... I've been trying to find a Virgin Australia Model plane... You wouldn't happen to know the best place to find any would you?

    All systems go for tomorrow's launch flight. We have even found the requisite Qantas spy on the manifest and see that they have also joined Velocity - no status match sorry. Good to see that they will slum it in economy in one direction - wouldn't really expect Qantas management to mix it with the hoi poloi.

    Good to hear, I'm a bit disappointed that I can't come on the inaugural flight But I've managed a flight in 2 weeks and that will feel just as special IMO

    I'm flying Business on Friday and back Sunday slumming it in Y but booked an exit row so it won't be too bad.
