Unfortunately, they don't have permission to fly to the States (a DOT402) - and until they get an AOC and Operating Licence, they won't get one.

They used 2 a.net pics in the OUR FLEET Section

The strange thing is that one is Gulf Air and the other is Swissair

Why did they show the cabins of two different airlines?

Hi,

They asked my permission for the first Picture.
I took that picture on a gulf air flight in their A330.

They will have the same setup as the BC from Gulf air So that is why they used that picture.

I think they are going to create the Best Business Class around.

The configuration of the VG Airlines A330-200 aircraft will be the same as that of Sabena. Don't forget, Sabena's Business class had the best seat pitch in the world (62 inch), unless another airline has since rivalled that? What VG would do is change the upholstery to match the VG image, nothing more.

Yes the seat pitch is perfect and especially the support of the lower legs.

I am quit tall 1,93 and I had a perfect seat on the 330-300 Sabena Flight from Bru to JFK.

Electronic adjustable in six positions and their space to the seat in front is 95 cm.
