As Doona allready said, it was not the flight from a few weeks ago, which made an unexpected stop at AMS. Also it was not a flight which was coming for maintenance at the KLM. That was very clear in his post. Now is still the question open...

I heard this yesterday, February 24th. I, like you, am stumped. I'm thinking that AMS approach would be too early for a descent into London, and certainly not a departure.
Even so, were it a maintenance ferry, would it have a Virgin flight#?
Of course it could have been a virgin express flight with a british pilot, but I don't think it would be in AMS airspace unless it were landing or departing which it wouldn't. Do they perhaps fly to Groningen?
Hope someone can help me out, coz' I'm going out of my mind...
Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Virgin xpress does fly to and from Amsterdam.
Two daily flights actually:
one a/c flies BRU-FCO-AMS-FCO-BRU
the other one does BRU-LIN-AMS-LIN-BRU
this way Virgin does not have a base at AMS, but does fly twice daily: as mentioned above to Rome and Milan. both flights depart AMS around 1530 in the afternoon, about 45 minutes inbetween both departures. I once saw both a/c parked next to each other at the B-pier.
