Re: Australian Aviation Thread - July 2019

I would honestly like to see Virgin ditch Tiger completely, it's a distraction, and add a US-style Basic Economy fare to its VA flights, and also ditch ALL meals in economy except for east-west.

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - July 2019

If VA opts to reposition itself closer to it's LCC roots, where does that leave Tiger? I can see VA moving more “toward” LCC but not being another JQ. Something a bit more upmarket than JQ with a fun brand (ie original virgin blue) without being too corporate. They will probably retain the same cus...

I think this will become SYD-ORD when sunrise aircraft arrive. I would say it will start service after SYD/MEL-LHR and SYD-JFK though. So I’m guessing around 2024/25.
