Expect to see it at places like NRT, HKG, SFO, LAX, CPT. The first A340-600 should be delivered sometime in the summer.

There was a post recently which said that the first A346 will arrive in June and will be used on the Tokyo route.

Well the A340-600 will be operating on all of VS' busiest routes like LAX, SFO, JFK, JNB, NRT & HKG. They'll be replacing the A343 with the A346.

If the 600 is replacing the 300, where will the 300's go eventually? Are Virgin looking at the 600's as fleet expansion, or replacement (or the oldest aircraft in their fleet - the 300's)?

I have my doubts that VS would fly the A340-600 to SFO, especially given the popularity of the LHR-SFO-LHR route.

I expect VS to continue to fly the 747-400 on this route until the A380-800 becomes available.

As for the VS A340-300 fleet, wasn't it that Airbus as going to take in the A343's as trade-in's in lieu of the A346's?
