Virgin Nigeria 767

Tue Jun 12, 2007 1:06 am

Where does it fly to?

I see that they plan to get more 767s... Expansion? Or are they getting rid of the A340(s)?

They are getting rid of the A340 and building a long-haul fleet based on the B767. They currently serve JNB and LGW, rumour has it that DXB will reopen in the foreseeable future. Moreover VK's application to serve JFK is likely to be approved shortly after the EU-US open skies agreement, which means they will start serving LOS-JFK soon (in addition to code-sharing with NA).

Isn't it a bit of a reduction in inflight service? Or will they refurbish the 767s?

I am not sure, but I think there are no PTVs in economy on the B767.
