Can you keep track of all the Virgin airlines that are out there now? Yes, the ones that are “Virgin ______” are easy to tell, but some aren’t so easy.
V Australia gives a big hint with the big “V”.The airline is the “sister” to Virgin Blue. The airline departs from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and flies to LAX and Phuket. Flights to Fiji will start on December 18th and they hope to get to Johannesburg by March 2010.
Virgin Blue put the name of the new airline up to vote. The final name choices were: Matilda Blue, V Australia, Australia Blue, Virgin Pacific, Amelia Blue, Didgeree Blue, Liberty Blue, and Virgin Australia. Of course V Australia won and they named their first plane after the 2nd place name, Digeree Blue.
They currently run four Boeing 777-300ER’s in a 3 class layout. Any guesses on what the next Virgin airline wil be called?Bob the Airplane Nut
