Does anyone know if VA still operates this route on certain days on behalf of EY in between trips to/from SYD? Since it's a wet lease, it's hard to tell on the Internet booking sites.

If this still occurs, I'm thinking it would happen on a Sunday between VA's arrival late on Sat nights from SYD and departure on Monday mornings back to SYD.

It would appear to be the case, flights in June are still showing the following:

Please note

On your selected day of travel, Kuala Lumpur to Abu Dhabi (EY411) and Abu Dhabi to Kuala Lumpur (EY418) flights are operated by our codeshare partner Virgin Australia’s aircraft and crew

This is for 16JUN13:

On the subject of Virgin Australia and their 777-300ERs, VH-VPD positioned to Singapore from Sydney on 02FEB13 as VA9943. It might be safe to say that this Aircraft is in Singapore for a repaint..

Isn't the cabin refit & paintwork carried out in AKL...?

No, the painting is carried out in Singapore.

The first 77W to be repainted VH-VPH ferried to SIN on 26MAR12 as VA9079 and rolled out of the paintshop on 11APR12.

Another forum is suggesting that VH-VOZ will be the third and next a/c to be repainted, arriving SIN 15FEB13.

This arrangement is probably a nice money earner for VA, uses up down time on the aircraft. And would be a fun route for crew I would presume.


Airliners flowen in: 737-700, 737-800, A320, A321, 777-300ER, 777-200ER, 777-300, 787-8, A330-200

Cheers...

So I take it the regional aircraft & 737 fleet is painted in New Zealand with long haul in Singapore... I know the 1st A332 VH-XFB was painted in Malaysia but might have been a one off as that was prior to the rebranding...
