G-VHOT is currently having the re-fit, leaving just G-VXLG, G-VWOW and GVFAB of the LHR B744 fleet to be done.

HOT has been gone a few weeks now, so should be back soon, I dont know which plane is next, or the timetable for B744 completion though.

anyone else?!!

FAB will also be getting V:port and all new econ/premium seats too, same as G-VHOT which is still getting it done at the moment.

I read on a.net that the Suite re-fit is ahead of schedule (don't know the schedule though!) and that there will be either 2 or 3 LGW B744's (out of the LGW fleet of 5) done by xmas 2004.

At a guess this should mean LGW will be 100% suite config by Summer 2005 (except for the Port Harcourt A343 service)

perhaps a VS employee could confirm?......................

Richard28 and all

Suite input dates as they stand at the moment:

VWOW May
VSHY May
VFOX Jun
VFAB Jun/Jul
VMEG Jul
VGOA Jul
VATL Aug

744s will be done in DUB, 346s in TLS. No idea on the LGW 744s yet.

Cheers

looks like most of the Ladies used predominately on the LAX route will be done soon then by the end of the summer. Are all planes gettying updates to V:Port at the same time as suite outfit?

May need to use some miles to upgrade and try this out!  Smile

Thanks for that Airchabum!

I take it that G-VXLG will be done next - as its not in your list?

Amhilde, looks pretty good for Suites on 744's from LHR-LAX! - just make sure you go on VS7/8, as the other flight (VS23/34) is an A343 with the old J class!

Cheerio, and thanks again!

Amhilde

The 2 a/c that had Arcadia (HOT/FAB) are also having v:port installed at the same time as the Suite but i think the Odyssey a/c will stick with that (the games are better on Odyssey anyway!  Wink/being sarcastic ) The 4 Suite equipped a/c are normally planned on VS19 SFO, VS7 LAX, VS1 EWR and VS3 JFK.

Richard

I presume XLG will be done last...the list I've got only goes upto Aug. For info G-VTOP is due out of DUB on Mon 26th after its refit.

Cheers
