Virgin out of Delhi?

Rumour going around that VS with their twice weekly sevice are going to pull out of Delhi end of march.Can anybody confirm that this is true.Also heard BA increasing service to 2 times daily to Delhi from end of March very odd.

That's been on the cards for about a year. I heards that it cost too much to carry the extra fuel for a long diversion?

On the Other hand.

Loads look good & I've not seen too many specials (fares) around.

NBO ???

On a slightly different note, anybody heard anything about VS operating into NBO. They filed an application with the CAA over a year ago but nothing seems to have come of it. Anybody know any different??

There seem to be a number of comflicting rumours over the internet on the state of Virgin Atlantic in India.
Just to enlighten you on some of them!
1. The above mentioned rumor that Virgin Atlantic will pull out of Delhi.
2. Virgin Atlantic will as a short term measure to increase capacity in India add a thrice weekly frequency if possible, and add a second Indian city with similar frequencies.
Just giving you the news
