That's just what I thought.

The last four times I've been to MIA I got to see their 346, actually I have a pretty cool evidence:



Cheers!

MIA is now operated using A346's on a permanent basis. No more 747's.

I flew VS 744 2 years ago and it was in horrible condition. It's actually nice to see the A346 on a permanet basis!

VS A346's are very nice to fly in. Glitzy cabin and SO quiet.

I'll have to make that trip again then! We haven't flown the A340 yet and this is one of the prettiest. Last summer we did fly VS LHR-MIA but it was still on the B744. It was very good really, too, as we were non-revving and got the bulkhead for the kids plus the row behind for me, I stretched out!
I wish that all skies were orange and blue!!
