Why Always The Old Buses To DEL

I am a passenger to DEL quite often and am surprised why do VS always fly the oldest aircraft to DEL not to mention BOM. The aircraft always have the old buisness class and crapped out IFE system. BA with the twice daily Delhi will rob the passengers. NOW is the time to put the best aircraft with the new interiors on the route to teach the compettitors what VS can do. I hope they do as VS is a superb airline but need to look after the Delhi passengers too!!!
Oh nearly forgot, the DEL and BOM aircraft are Virgin Nigeria liveried too.

Well for starters, look up user name 'Ponmath' and he'll probably tell you everything there is to tell on G-VBUS which is the Virgin Nigeria A340 that mostly flies to BOM. The guy hates G-VBUS and VS with a passion.

Like Varig_dc10 said, check out that thread and you'll get your question answered.

That is incorrect, I do not hate VS. Actually I love VS. It is just that I am unable to justify why they put the Nigerian aircraft on LHR-DEL route all the time.

Its not only the VS. There are other culprits too who put old dino machines to Indian routes.

Nothwest - DC-10-30, BOM
Saudi Arabian - 747-200, BOM / MAA
Thai Airways - AB6, BLR
and many more which I am not aware of..

Note, all these are high density / high yield routes and all these airllines have shiny new aircrafts. I wonder why they end up sending these a/cs.

Other operators like BG, IR and Ariana needs to be excused since they only have 60's stuff with them.

Note: I am not against these aircrafts. Infact I love elegant looking NWs DC-10s. But I don't understand the logic behind operating them to India with ever growing business pax seats.

None of them, barring maybe TG, make the wild kind of hype and promises that VS does about its "service". That's the difference. When you fly NW or Saudia, you know the indifferent kind of service you will get and about the old aircraft that will operate. Likewise, Thai's reputation is also taking a nosedive.

Similarly, within domestic flights in India, you know that you will get reasonably old aircraft from Indian Airlines, mixed bag from Air Sahara, brand new planes from Jet Airways and Kingfisher, reasonably new planes from Deccan and efficient modern 737-800s from SpiceJet.

But VS? They put out these ads, SRB does the hype, and then you get . . . an old Nigerian airplane!

It is not just the age. It is also the potential liability issue.

What liability issue?

Service advertisements are subject to interpretation by the consumer. VS can just turn around and say that their service standards are not compromised by an eight year old A340.

Besides, BOM is not the only destination to get VS's older A340s.

And, NW fly their DC10s to all sorts of European destinations.

Why would Nigeria have anything to do with the issue here?

Virgin Nigeria is a subsidiary of Virgin Atlantic; the maintenance and operation of the aircraft is done by Virgin Atlantic; the aircraft with its Virgin Nigeria livery is being operated as a Virgin Atlantic flight. Nigeria is basically an after thought here.

Virgin Nigeria is Nigeria's private sector flag carrier51% owned by Nigerian institutional investors and 49% owned by Virgin Atlantic.

The Nigerian government has precious little to do with it.

Besides, the operation of the Virgin Nigeria A340 by Virgin Atlantic on a Virgin Atlantic flight pretty much puts the legal liability on Virgin Atlantic as governed by UK or Indian laws (depending on what the issue is). The Virgin Nigeria aircraft are also maintained and serviced by VS.

I'm sorry but this is such a typical wealthy Indian attitude. Get over it, India is not the centre of the universe, and although its got billions of ppl, and a hell of a lot of millionaires, it is not, and never will be, London, New York, Paris Hong kong or Tokyo. Wealthy indians (they're not alone...Nigerians etc of wealth tend to be just as bad) are so used to being waited on hand and foot they expect everybody and everycompany on the planet to drop to the feet and meet their every wish and demand. Well tough titties. Your own home grown companies aren't exactly that crash hot now are they? So maybe...before VS gets bashed, you guys should get on Air India's and friends backs. Seriously, VS sending an 8 yr, current generation aircraft is hardly doing tough. How old are the Boeing 733s and 734s that QF, BA and LH fly? Or the MD-80s that SK fly? Get real, is all i can say. and if you do have a major problem with it, simple...fly another airline.

A bit strong Lufthansa. All I am trying to say is why VS do not use the Virgin Nigeria airplane on any other routes except India and understandably Nigeria. Lets not forget that they charge the same fare for the old business class as the new yet India do not get the new one.

Point made. Case closed.

But wealthy Indians (and Nigerians) pay the same fares as wealthy New Yorkers, Parisians etc. So, they're entitled to having a Business Class product that is advertised with a fully functional IFE, just as much wealthy New Yorkers are. When you dish out $ 5000 for a Delhi-London ticket, the last thing you want is some twit telling you that Delhi ain Paris or Tokyo or that the $ 5000 dished out by some rich Delhi-ite aint got the same sheen as the same dough dished out by a Brit or an American.

If Virgin adopted the same attitude you have, they'll be flying empty from India very soon. I guess tough titties to them too.

And what does Air India have to do with any of this? When you pay the fare for a Virgin Business Class experience and receive a less than stellar experience, having said twit tell you that being Indian you should be used to Air India's J Class product is a racist idiotic rant that hopefully any sane airline wouldn't adopt.

Why should you be sorry. You are correct. The more I think of it, the more Paris reminds me of Beirut. Yup, the bit where it says "Paris is Berut", sure. Especially where the cars are smelling . . . of burnt rubber and bad petrol.

Planeboy, India is a high density, not a high yield market. Check your facts and get back to us at a later time. Have you seen the scores of adverts in newspapers for cheap and discounted seats on Virgin from London, Air India from New York? Like I said, check your facts and let us know when you grasp the fact.

Pomnath is at it again, he has hijacked yet another thread and turned it into an anti-Virgin Atlantic rally.

Airlines have flagship routes. Delhi and Bombay are flagship for no one airline with the exception of airlines from the Indian subcontinent. When you fly on Virgin Atlantic to Barbados, you dont expect the same glitz as one would on a route such as Los Angeles to London. When you fly Singapore Airlines from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, you dont expect the same glitz as Hong Kong to San Francisco. When you fly Qantas from Melbourne to Perth, you dont expect the same glitz from Los Angeles to Melbourne. It is a reality. Airlines fly routes for one reason alone - money.

If Delhi and Bombay were such moneymakers - which they are not, then VS would expend a 747-400 on it. However fact of the matter is that India is not the great white way that many people explain it to be.

Something that you also may want to think about. A few years back when I was a Manager for the call center of an international consolidater here in the United States, the most requested seats to India were always, always on Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, and British Airways. As of recent I talked to a friend at the company and they stated yet again that Singapore, Cathay, and British were still the most requested. I asked about Virgin Atlantic, and he said that Virgin has many agreements with places such as STA Travel to offer the lowest fares in the market. When you have an airline offering a bulk number of seats to a company such as STA, you know the yields are not gleaming by any means.


Just be happy than Virgin Atlantic made a decision to fly to India. With passengers ranting and raving like Pomnath and his fellow countrymen, I can hardly see Virgin wanting to risk anything else on India.

Pomnath is also a platinum flyer in Sahara who has some aircraft which are even older than the Virgin Nigeria Aircraft.

Pomnath, I once flew BOM MAA on a Jet Airways A320 flight in 1997 (yes A320). I didnt get all hot and bothered that, despite purchasing a ticket- a full fare economy ticket mind you - no APEX at thst time -and directly from Jet airways ticket counter at the airport to boot - I ended up boarding a Gulf Air aircraft! (they had leased the aircraft briefly for a month) painted in GF colors and with GF interiors and defintely GF flight crew as well !This was in 1997 - long before the A340s came in! Neither did I see any other passenger on board the aircraft pick up a fight with the cabin crew (due to the breach of promise you know - an all Boeing airline putting pax on a 320- unbeleivable isnt it!).
