Just curious, does virgin have any plans to refit their A343 fleet with the new Upper Class suites?

If not, then what are the plans for this aircraft.

As far as I am aware, VS are still undecided on the decision as to refitting their A343's. They see them out of the fleet soon, thus being pointless to start the refitting. They have got rid of one but it's frozen again, perhaps to start when more 346's are delivered?

Are they getting rid of them?
This would seem stupid as they are not that old. I remember when I first flew Jetstreamer from MAN - MCO back in 97. I just flew Jetstreamer again on the 23rd from LHR-IAD. I far prefer them to the 747's, but the A346's are my favorite. I guess virgin are expanding because they won't need the smallest planes in their fleet.

They are getting rid of the Arcadia -311 models I think. According to V-Flyer, the -300X models (which have Odyssey) will be staying and getting a suite refit as of the end of the year.
