Brilliant to see VS opening up new routes (unless you're BWIA of course!)
As they do with the majority of flights, Virgin Atlantic's sister company, Virgin Holidays will be selling alot of seats on the VS services as part of a package so that's another problem for Bwee.
Also because VS is more financially stable and has more cash to play with I assume they'll be able to offer more incentives to get pax onto their flights.
The VFR market may stay faithful to Bwee, but I rekon most British holiday makers would rather fly with VS because of their excellent reputation here in the UK.
Considering VS wasn't expected to open new routes for a while, I wonder if they are now putting more focus on VFR and leisure routes like these.
Also, does anyone know if VS are actually planning to start flights to Abuja, Nigeria which have been rumoured for a while?
