I think that the 737 came from virgin Express in england. I am not to sure about that but I thihk that I read it somewhere before.
I would say that there is somone here that can answer this better than I. But I hope that I am right!!

You are all correct in guessing that the 737-400 does infact come from Virgin Atlantic. We have been leasing the aircrafts for about three years now every winter to help with sun destinations. There are two of them bearing the registrations C-GBIX & C-GBIW. This is the last week they will be in service for us, and we will no-longer be using them in the winter schedual. TS has purchased to L1011-500 from Air Lanka.

If you want to be exact;
The 737s come from Virgin Express, which is a Belgian company, not Virgin Atlantic, it's UK parent or Virgin Express Ireland, it's Irish subsidiary. That's as clear as mud - right!
Anyway, does anyone else think that those 737s look really good in the hybrid red Air Transat livery - I do, any takers - or do I just have bad taste!?!?!?!?

I agree, I like the way that the plane looks in those colours, I would like to see the rest of teh fleet re-painted in those colours. It would be much better then the new one, I don't like that star, it has nothing to do with Canada, at least the 737's are in Canadian Colours.
