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...

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.
