Does anyone have a list of the aircraft that have served Virgin Blue? I am looking to collect data on all of the aircraft, when they entered service, when they left the carrier (737-400s) and what their names are/were. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

By no means complete but here's a start for you:
Previous aircraft;
B737-43Q VH-VGA is back with Virgin Express
B737-4Q8 VH-VGB is now with Air One
B737-46M VH-VGC is now with CSA
B737-4Y0 VH-VGD is back with Virgin Express
B737-43Q VH-VGE is back with Virgin Express
B737-4Q8 VH-VOZ is now with Air One
Have a look here for the more current fleet and names.

Did the 737-300s and 737-400s carry any names?

No names were ever on the 737-400

BNE, the Boeing 737-33A is VH-CZQ, not VCQ, an ex-Ansett model leased from AWAS:

How come they plan on keeping the 737-300 until October 2003? It seems odd that they retired all of their 737-400's and yet keep 1 737-300 by itself. Does this plane fly any special routes as opposed to the NG's?
