I find it strange that you are a big supporter of growth at British Airways, whilst pleading for modesty at Virgin Atlantic, notably an airline whose network offers still plenty of opportunity to further expansion.
Traditional strongholders in British Aiways' network, such as BOM, SIN, SYD, MEL or LOS, to name just a few, are currently not served by Virgin Atlantic, whilst others, like CPT or ORD, could do with some extra services.

United Airline, what are you, Branson's fleet manager? What makes you think they have "enough" 742s? This is one of the oddest posts I've seen in ages, at least since the one where someone said that SR111 came down because Swissair pilots take their shoes off during flight and put their feet up on airconditioning vents and fluff from dirty socks caused the fire (I kid you not - it's probably in the archive somewhere).

I think it is very possible that they are going to get some 742's, they ordered 744's, A340-600's and the A380, but until the a/c will be delivered they might need some more a/c because of the need for more capacity on some routes.
I can't be totally sure, but I think they are going to get some 742's.
