Are you sure it's coming to Hong Kong tomorow? I thought the inaugural flight to Hong Kong was in November, like Cx_flyboy said?

Virgin Atlantic has no service between LHR and BKK? I doubt that since British Airways does that route with their 744s. I'm sure that they must have a service between LHR and BKK since BKK is a fairly important hub in Southeast Asia besides the other cities.

CX_flyboy,

I think our bet has been resolved  Smile . I believe it was I talked with about CX starting to use A346 before VS to/from Hong Kong!

I think the flts this week are just a couple of upgrades due to heavy demand at the moment. Not sure if there will be any press, etc on board.

Boeing747400,

Why do you doubt that VS have no service from LHR-BKK just because BA do ?. BA serve about 10 times more places than VS does, so that doesn't mean VS fly to them all just because BA do.

VS are not even planning to operate the LHR-BKK route at any point in the future.

Airchabum,

Hi. How you ?. Did you see that G-VSHY and G-VMEG both operated for the first time together the other day to JFK and EWR ?. Bit of a nightmare getting stands for them both at the moment at LHR. Only got 2 towbars too. One on the line and one in the hanger !!.

I'd post a photo but it would get rejected due to it being of such poor quality!  Crying

Hi..fine thanks. Did you have fun with the Lagos pax today??!! I hope GAL can find a few more A340-600 sized stands before the next one arrives then!
