Bigger Is Better

Sat Mar 13, 2004 1:42 pm

Does anybody know if Virgin has plans to buy the Airbus A380? I could sit around for hours thinking about what Richard Branson would do. Maybe he could put a spa in the center and a roll-up watertight cover. Add chairs that run into lounge chairs. Put very powerful lights in the ceiling and have a beach party at 20,000 feet! After all, he does have bars in one or two of his 747s right now. I wouldn't be surprised if he wants to do something similar with the A380! As Austin Powers would say: Shagadelic! Maybe Sir Richard should paint it to match Austin's private 747. Watch the movie if you haven't seen the plane!

I'm not sure of the status of their orders.

But I have a 1/100th scale model of the A380 in Virgin colors and it is one of the highlights of my model collection!

Yes, VS is one of the launch customers for the 380.
