Re: Confirmed: Virgin Atlantic ordering/leasing 14 A330-900neo's plus 6 options

Does anyone else think an order of a220s and a321s is possible for virgin? They have short and long haul networks but virtually no medium haul network.

Thoughts?

Re: Flybe update

Does anyone think that a fly be/ virgin order of a a321s and a220s would make sense? I’m not an expert but I believe that the e195 was not the right plane but with virgins long haul network, could they make it work?
