This is probably a no brainer question for some of you to answer. But..
I know somebody who claims to have flown on the VS A346 from IAD to LHR this July. Is that possible? Is that plane ever used on this route?

What is the reg on VS's Indian Princess? Is she the one that had the tail strike?

Finally.. how many 346's are in the VS fleet? how many more are scheduled to enter the fleet?

thanks folks.

Its there all the time. I don't know if its presently scheduled, but I've seen it overhead and at the gate on many, many occasions.

Yes, VS operates an A346 daily into IAD. As VS021 and VS022. So that person isn't BS-ing you.

Definately flies LHR-IAD, as my roommates flew on it back in Feb.

As for numbers, check http://www.jethros.i12.com for up to date fleet listings for all UK carriers.

Cheers,

I think that is the aircraft that it operates there now. I've seen a bunch of pictures that has the Virgin 346 in them. It was wonderful when they upgraded to a 744 from a 742, which was upgraded from a 343. How many flights do they operate a day now, 1 or 2?

Yes, and on a side note, a VS 346 had a tail scrape a week or two ago.

Hi Sdate747

I work for VS and just to add to what the others have said....

VS21/22 is currently a 346 on Mon/Fri/Sat/Sun. (343 on other days).

Indian Princess is G-VGOA. The one that had the tailstrike in IAD was G-VOGE (now repaired).

There are currently 7 346s in the fleet. I think 3 more are on order with 1 due later this year.

Cheers
