I was just looking through the Virgin Atlantic schedule and there I only found flights flown by either the A340-300 or the B747-400 but no A340-600 operated ones.

Where does VS send them to?
And how many do they have in their fleet at the moment?

Thank you in advance,
Max

Hi Max,

As far as i am aware Narita and Hong Kong are the main destinations for the 346.

From what i can establish,some US destinations receive the odd flight if an Asian service is axed for the day - hence a 346 to IAD last week - so it is said.

Look out for my trip report,off to NRT on saturday on VS(346),back a week friday.

I have seen them several times at JFK. They operated as Virgin 009 on May 3 and May 5 from KJFK to EGLL. I don' know where else they operate them though.

As for their fleet, JetPhotos.net has 6 listed as being operated by Virgin Atlantic. (G-VATL, G-VFOX, G-VGOA, G-VMEG, G-VOGE, G-VSHY).

Guess the NRT was cancelled again yesterday.

I've heard the loads are well below 50% on all VS asian services at the moment.Should be ok for leg and sleeping room!

Hopefully this SARS business will be under control soon,then we can all get back to travelling.

Thank you guys,

Too bad I was thinking about flying to JFK with VS this year yet to get a ride on the A340-600 but I guess I'll have to change plans on that one than... Well maybe they will replace the Asian A340-600s with -300's if the loads are not that good on those routes...
If not I wouldn't mind flying to NRT either  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
