Virgin Atlantic LHR - SFO Which Aircraft?

Sun Feb 15, 2004 6:15 pm

I know its a little silly post but, I am about to purchase tickets for LHR-SFO and want to fly on board A340-600.

Do Virgin Atlantic operate A340's to SFO?

Does any other airline operate A340's to SFO from LHR

Thanks

Stephen

The VS19/20 LHR-SFO-LHR are mostly served by a 744 but very occasionally by a A343 but not the A346. You can go to http://www.virginflyer.com to check your chances of which aircraft you might get on to SFO.

The flight as Sky said is a 747-400 with the A340 popping in every once in a while. To answer the other question no other carrier flys a A340 to LHR from SFO. No other carrier that operates SFO-LHR even have A340.
BA 2 Daily 747-400
VS 1 Daily 747-400
UA 2 Daily 1 747-400/1 777

Is VS going to add any extra frequencies this summer? I know a few years back they had a Gatwick- SFO service five times a week on top of their LHR service.
