What Was G-VKIS Doing In Dubai?!

Thu May 10, 2001 5:47 am

On 7/5/01 at 15:58 G-VKIS departed for Dubai U.A.E from LHR as VS6151

This is a Virgin Sun A321. What was it doing at LHR, and why was it going to Dubai?!

Any help much appreciated

Yeah, but from LHR??? and i guess it would have been an Ad-hoc charter not an ITC...

This is going slightly off topic, but when Virgin Sun is absorbed into Air 2000, this autumn, what'll happen to the a/c? I'd read that they weren't going to AMM.

Englandair,
I guess they will be returned to whoever they have leased them from. As regards what the machine was doing in Dubai, Maybe it got lost!

Dubai does not have any specific islamic importance so i can not think why it would be for any pilgrimage ......certainly not Hajj as that is during a particular part of the year which has long gone ....and that is in Mecca .....now where near dubai.
