Just goes to show that there is nothing new under the sun. I think Mr Lim and John Sharp realise that Virgin is probably not going to emerge from administration and that now is the time to expand. Upgrading an AOC is simpler (in a relative sense) than obtaining a new one. Just look at the experience of Virgin Blue and Impulse in 2000. Impulse were up and running with 717s before VB. As to who will fly the things well thats a whole different ball game. There will be plenty of experienced NB pilots willing to sign whatever is put in front of them to get back into the air.
