Who Uses Call Sign "vr"?

Who uses call sign VR? I heard it on channel nine in LAX recently? Is it Virgin Australia?

Virgin Australia is "Vee-Oz" (transpacific) or "Virgin" for domestic flights in Australia.

VA's call sign is Vee-Oz, which could be mistaken as "VR".

VR on an airband frequency would most likely be a US Navy flight.

Thanks for the info. I suspect I was hearing V-Oz as it was early morning at LAX.
