A friend of mine booked a flight to EWR and told me her ticket showed A346 as aircraft type. I was sceptic, but delighted. When I tracked the flight (VS001 on Dec 21st) it showed up as A343 (so I was slightly disappointed for her). So, can anyone tell me, on flight tracker, do the A346s show up as 343s or as 346s? And better yet, can anyone confirm what aircraft operated VS001 on December 21st? I'm kinda curious whether my advising her to fly Virgin landed her in their newest aircraft with the best IFE, or in an older one with the Arcadia system (which would be rather disappointing!)...

G-VSEA has the Odyssey system which is a lot better than the Arcadia system (although not as good as V:port!) If your friend is booked on VS002 for her return then she should be lucky as this service is planned to operate on -600's until further notice.
