G-VPUF finally went last month.
G-VZZZ went in March, the rest went between Jan-Mar.

How long is the lease of TF-ATW (for MCO operations) from Air Atlanta supposed to last? The -200 sure does look great in Virgin Atlantic's new colors! We get TF-ATW into MCO practically daily.

Doesn't VS also lease a 2nd 742 from Air Atlanta for their flights to Nigeria?

Sorry this is off the subject of the original question but to answer the subsequent queries.........

The lease on TF-ATW (previously known as G-VSSS) runs until the end of the MAN-MCO season in early November.

The second leased a/c operating the Lagos route commences in July.
