The latest news is that they are working on a new destignation to Melbourne and Sydney.

The mas codeshare story will be finished than

Also in the Upper Class they are going to install some double size beds ( Mhhhhh, nice stories will be placed in the Mile High Club )

Virgin doesn't suprise me anymore.

If they do start flights to Oz, it'd be intersting to see if they codeshare internally with Virgin Blue.

I don't think any low-fares carriers currently codeshare with full-service airlines - it could cause a slight overlap in Virgin Blue's business if they did.

Sabena used to codeshare with Virgin Express.
Any idea what they would fly to Oz and where they will take their refueling stop?

Would Virgin be allowed to fly their own aircraft into Sydney, as per the bilaterals and government policy at the moment? When Emirates started to fly to Aussie, they had to fly to Melbourne first to gain access to the Sydney market.

Maybe this is a plan for the A380? Anyone know the range of the A380? Maybe it can go London-Sydney without a refueling stop.

The MAS/Virgin code-share agreement will end in 2005. Now, all of Virgin's flight to Sydney are operated via a code-share with MAS. What will happen to MAS's flight to London then? Reduced to only 11 weekly flights?

Anyway, Virgin had said they intend to fly into Australia quite some time ago. The stop-over city either in Asia or America will be interesting. There are rumors that Shanghai is going to be the stop-over city, but I don't know if China's CAA will give Virgin fifth freedom rights at Shanghai. I don't think SIA wants it to go via Singapore as this will create direct competition with SIA.

Regards.

Could Hong Kong be a possible stop over city? Or perhaps Mumbai or Dubai? What do you think?

I'd like to see SFO or LAX as a stopover. Does anyone know how this would comapre to an easterly route in terms of mileage?

VS does a codeshare from LHR to DEL with AI, cud it be possible for them to extend their service and codeshare to oz from here?
and maybe they will fly to mumbai and then on to oz! increasing their destionations to india at the same time.
btw- why doesnt VS fly to mumbai- it is after all the commercial centre of india????
would delhi be a suitable fuel stop off point for the airline possibly?
it would be good to see!!

Amo757,

Exactely my toughts. VS is using AI slots to fly to DEL, that is why it code shares with AI. I guess they could not make a similar deal on the BOM route. BOM surely would be a economical stop. I remember an airline flying from Europe to Australia and making a stopover in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Parra,

It is shorter to fly via Asia to Oz. For New Zealand distances are about similar I think.

It's around 2000 miles shorter to fly via HKG, SIN or DXB than via LAX/SFO from LHR to SYD.

Virgin may pause to think about continuing to use KUL as a stopover since there is currently no British carrier operating on this lucrative route. VS may also want to compliment SIA's route network as SQ may then be able to code-share on the LHR-KUL market since SQ does cater to a large number of travellers in the Malaysian market.

Virgin Also works together with Air Pacific from LAX to Fiji and than on to Syd.

Great difference in service but very friendly staff with Air Pacific
