SQ's Virgin-Atlantic Routes

With SQ's 49% stake in VS, I heard that SQ is going to take over some of VS' current routes. My question is:

1) What are the routes going to be taken over?

2) When will this take effect?

3) What aircraft will these routes be operated by? (i.e. will they be operated by SQ aircraft or VS or what?)

4) Will Singapore F/As be operating the service or VS or a mix?

5) Will SQ be using their crappy A310s on these routes (not that all are that crap but they're ageing)?

Thanks. Any response is appreciated.

There are no plans for SQ to take over VS routes

I can see VS leasing some of SQ's aircraft that would otherwise have sat idle to operate some services, but that is all. As SQ is obviously not from an EU country, I dont see how it could get rights to a route like MAN-MCO. BA occasionally leases QF 744s to operate charters out of LHR.

As SQ wants more trans-Atlantic services, it will code share on Virgins North American flights.
I dont think Virgin will ever fly into Singapore in its own right, they are more likely to code share with SQ, and onwards to places like Manila, KL and Jakarta. ~

But this makes me wonder about the VS/Malaysia Airlines relationship. Does anyone know of this will be abandoned? SQ would not tolerate its new partner working with one of its main competitors.
