come on.....quit taking pictures of the interiors of mothballed aeroflot tu-134's or 1962 greyhound busses and trying to pass them off as new jetliners.

For a 737NG, that is pretty bad. I'm suprised Branson would stand for such a thing!

I don't get it.... Virgin Blue call themselves Virgin Blue because their aircraft are bright red, and the Australian colloquial expression for a red-headed person is a "Bluey" (source - Airliner World, a couple of years ago.) So they paint their aircraft red and blue... add a bit of white for good measure... and now a revolting snot-green interior?

Still, if they're comfortable and the fare's cheap, I'd take one...

They acquired a second hand plane and didn't bother to change the seats:

Well, excuse me. Snot green is one of my favorite colors. It is the blue carpet that is out of place.

Bluey, yeah I've heard that before. But come on. What kind of first impression is that for customers? "Welcome aboard Virgin Blue. Have a seat on our snot green seats and enjoy your fligh!" Come on!

While I think the pictured interior is ugly, it's nothing compared to Biman Bangladesh's interiors.

Ive flown that plane once from Perth to Sydney and i can say that this LEASED aircraft from an Italian carrier (cant remember which one) is quite uncomfortable. To original virgin Blue seats are far more comfortable. These seats are really hard, i dont know why Virgin doesnt change the seats and put it on par, comfort wise with its remaining fleet.

Oh, ich, that's horrible. It looks like a crate of whisky bottles shaped into seats.

Air France- I hate those headrests. They look like dishcloths.

As for the Biman one, it's garish, but at least it's tolerable.
