The beggining of the S11 timetable will also mark the beginning of deliveries of the new A333's. I was on airlineroutes.not earlier and it appears VS have already started to adjust there timetable for S11 to reflect the introduction of the new aircraft.
The S11 timetable is available to view on the VS website up until 27 June 2011. I looked at the S11 timeable for 13JUL11 - 19JUL11 and compared it to the current S10 timetable and noticed the following changes
From London Heathrow to:
Boston: S11 daily flight will operate with 6 weekly A346's and a weekly A343. This summer it operates with 4 weekly 744's and 3 weekly A343's.

The A333's and increased use of the A346's will free up 2 or 3 744's. Could these be sold or will they use them to increase capacity elsewhere??
