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.
