Just been having a look around the Virgin Blue website and noticed this.

This is for the 737-400.

Range - 4660 km

From Boeing Web site.
Maximum Range 2,370 statute miles (3,815 km

So what do they fill up those planes with, Extra fuel tanks on the inside like the Hawiian 717.

Even Virgin Express only say 3815km.

Why fly non stop when you can connect

Cheap russian vodka goes a long way  Smile/happy/getting dizzy It might have been acquired prematurly for the Aeroflot deal and sent down under.

Maybe different engines? lower weight? less pax/cargo? lighter F/A's and pilots? typo?

2 possibilities....:

1) They're flying without passenger, and using Slivovice as fuel....!!! terrible.

2) They Use THC extract as fuel, and they made all the passengers smoke, to let them know, that the trip i longer...the KGB is after that, that's a conspiracy!!!


 Smokin cool

With Virgin Atlantic, anything is possible. Remember, in a time where most airlines cram their 747s with seats, Virgin still has a stand up bar & lounge.

Air Taiwan
The 1st NG700 will be delivered this month and will
start service at beginning of May. If you check their
site out, you will find they are offering a 72 hour special
deal BNE-MEL for May of 70 odd dollars.
