Virgin Atlantic have withdrawn aptly named A340-600 aircraft 'Sleeping Beauty' from long-term storage, where it has sat since 2015, after purchase from it's former lessor. As a thank you to all of it's employees, specifically those responsible for the associated maintenance with bringing an aircraft out of long term storage, a special livery with the words 'a big virgin atlantic thank you' has been painted on the side of the aircraft, with the word 'rejuvenated' printed under the 'Sleeping Beauty' aircraft name. https://blog.virginatlantic.com/sleepin ... ck-g-vnap/
Without anthropomorphising our aircraft too much, Sleeping Beauty, one of our former Airbus A340-600 aircraft has been fast asleep in storage in Tarbes, France since 2015. After this long hibernation, our engineering teams have woken her up, checked her over and she is rejoining our fleet again. To celebrate, she’s had a rather special paint job.
