Virgin A330 is drawing heart?

Wed Feb 14, 2018 1:03 pm

I think this plane is onto something:

VIR850P from London to London http://fr24.com/VIR850P/106d5662

Is that a coincidence?

EDIT: ahh I just realised it is the Valentines day :D

It looks like one of the new ex air Berlin aircraft. I suspect a testing flight which they could use to generate some pr! It has already been picked up by some websites (http://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/1599350 ... ine_s_Day/) no doubt it will be picked up by more soon!

Virgin Atlantic already tweeted that it's a routine training flight that was already scheduled. They decided to amend the route slightly given today's date. And why not... ? ;-)

You have to give it to VS, they really are clever and smart when it comes to marketing opportunities. In just a week there’s been the special a340 livery and now this. And at very little expense probably as well with them both being a slight addition to normal ops

The link is now dead, and I can't figure out how to pull it up on FR24. Here's the FlightAware page for this flight:

It landed and because it was without a flight number it probably didn't save
