Was at the Red Sox game last night (for those who dont know thats Boston's baseball team) and thanks to the beautiful sky and the westwardly departures i could see most of the Europe flights taking off, and I thought my mind was playing tricks on me, but i swear i saw a Virgin A340-600 climbing into the night sky, it was a bit too long to be a -300 which i know they operate from time to time into BOS and not a 747....can anyone confirm if the flight to London yesterday was on an A340-600

Funny, I was sitting at the game last night thinking the same thing!! Big grin

That was Virgin 12.. Not sure which type it was, though.

I was... Left Center. I don't like the Sox, but the tickets were free  Smile A five year old could have caught that!

My first thought was that it was a 744.. But the light was starting to fade, and I thought again that it may be a 34X, after it turned back to the east. Continental advertises it as a 744 in their online reservations site.

Virgin now has a A340 flight in the mornings and 747 in the evening out of
Boston.

4 engines 4 long haul!

Sidenote: This evening (june 12), G-VFAB was the 744. "Lady Penelope"

Hi,

VS011 11/06 was operated by G-VAST (B744). Arrived BOS 17:21L. Airborne BOS 20:23. This was the only VS flight into BOS 11/06.

Regards,


SevenHeavy.



So long 701, it was nice knowing you.

Their punctuality has really been poor lately. I wonder what the problem has been?

I was in Boston last night (Saturday, June 12) and there was a VS A340-600 at the gate (terminal E, last gate as the road leaves the airport, don't know the gate number). This was around 10:10 pm.
