Also, I presume the Y seats on the old fleet are being recovered since the old one had "Blue" embossed into them. Is this correct?
I thought they were getting the new Y seats from the BSI product? I might be wrong, but I'm fairly certain it's more than just recovering the old seats...
It's hard to say... If they got into bed with a Chinese carrier then they could link SYD
to their hub (maybe HU
and fly into HGH
) or supplement services. NRT
could be a good destination out of MEL
(and potentially SYD
if they have the balls to face up to QF
/JL on the route, they could also team up with NH
to gather feed at the Tokyo end). They could compliment HA
services to HNL
out of MEL
and deepen that relationship (and potentially damage VC
in the process), they could even open up PER
, which EY
currently doesn't fly but EK
does twice daily (to DXB
). It's hard to say, though I do see it being based around building partnerships if they were to explore international with the A330s.

Yesterday I saw a V Australia getting a new Virgin Australia title on one of their 777s (VH-VPD) at LAX. Are they going to change the tail as well?
Wow that's hot stuff! I'm guessing the tail with change, though I'd love it if they left it alone... Was the text silver like the rest of the fleet? It appears a bit darker/purplier in the photo, but that's probably just the lighting?

is this no longer a feature of the new product? Or only on particular aircraft?
All the refitted aircraft have lost IFE. They were talking about announcing IFE 'in the near future' months ago, so it's hard to know what they're planning. The A330s still have their looped PTV system. Could we see them follow the QF
trial and maybe go for iPads/portable systems? I think it could work well for shorter domestic hops.
