New Premium Econ On VS' 343's?

Thu Sep 06, 2007 6:51 am

Quick question for anyone who knows-

I'm flying JFK-LHR soon and I'm wondering if VS has upgraded to the new premium econ on their 343's. Also, seems odd that they're using those birds on the JFK route, any ideas why?

Thanks!

All of the A343 fleet have the new premium seating. (with the exception of G-VSUN, which only does NBO runs)

With regards to them flying JFK flights, perhaps a better question is why not  Wink. They have flown the route more often than not since VS first got A343's. Usage and frequency simply varies according to demand. VS are pretty effective at shifting capacity around to match demand and JFK has less requirement for capacity once summer comes to an end.

So long 701, it was nice knowing you.

I'd rather fly with the new interior and Odyssey than the old interior and v:port. Thanks for the quick answers!
