I don't think many of us saw Virgin coming along at the 11th hour in a rescue deal.

Lots of froth on the web and on here as to the future strategy and operations of the new Company Connect Air, including my tuppence below.

Too early to say on where and on whom the hatchet falls, and where the golden chalice lies.
The existing routes structure and fleet is rather messy for Virgin to comprehend,
Virgin Red didn't last long feeding into LHR thus I don't see at the moment how the new Connect helps to strengthen VS's (and Delta's) L/H Ops at LHR even if NQY ABZ and EDI to/from LHR remain as existing.
(or helping those L/H from Manchester Glasgow or Belfast)

Anyway, interesting times - my thoughts with staff - awful uncertainty for many of them.
