G-VROY At DFW - 6/6

Wed Jun 07, 2017 3:21 am

Was taxiing out and looked out, and low and behold "Pretty Woman" was sitting at a remote stand in front of Terminal E.

Operated VS 972 from Gatwick! Reason for the surprise visit?

I hope they weren't expecting much, those 744's are pretty worn inside.

They're actually very fresh, were refurbed and the hard product is pretty decent.
