Virgin Atlantic A340-600's To MIA?

Tue Apr 20, 2004 4:17 pm

Hello everyone!

I read here long time ago that Virgin will start A346 service to Miami alternating with 744s.

If it's true, when will that happen? I am planning a trip to Miami this december and I would like to know what days the A346 will be operated in order to book my flight on the big bus.

if any VS worker/geek/fan can shed some light it would be appreciated it

Thanks a lot!

For the summer timetable, the flights will be 744 on SuMoFrSa and a 346 on TuWeTh. Though that is only for the summer.

The current winter timetable is showing a daily 343, though that will possibly change. The winter 2003/2004 schedule also showed a 343 at first, and it changed. However, there are rumours that the slots for the current seasonal extra BOS/IAD services this winter will move to be seasonal MIA services in the winter, which would make a 343 make more sense.

MAH4546,

When does VS's winter schedule officially start? We're flying LHR-MIA in early September, and if I can get a 346 rather than a 744 I'd love to!

Thanks,
Noel.

NoelG,

The winter timetable starts on 31 October, when the LHR-MIA flight is due to be operated by a 343. Stick to a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and you should be lucky!

Thanks for that!

Well I've just found out that I go out on a Saturday, but come back on the Thursday evening flight, on 9 September which is sked to be a 346!! Wuhoo!!

Lets just hope they don't change the equipment!
