Not being a regular VB user I wondered if anyone knew any info about VB's fleet. I may be doing a few Syd-GCoast shuttle flights over the next few months and may need their services.

Do they have just 737-700 & 800's? Also is there anywhere on their website that lists what type of aircraft is on each flight?

Thanks. :)

Yes Virgin Blue has just 737-700s and 737-800s. Some of both types are equipped with the wing tips and some without so you can't tell at a glance whether you are looking at 700 or 800 by the wing tips alone!
