View Full Version : VB following Australian Airlines?

Anyone else wondering how long it will be after the launch of AA before VB decide they've learned all necessary lessons and polish up the "single class, single fleet" concept for their own expansion into Asia Pacific routes. Will Branson send QF a thank you cheque for their proof of concept work?

maybe VB would prefer to wait and see, its already expanding much faster than planned...

I agree with you - Virgin Blue has a lot of work to do consolidating their current position & getting their infrastructure set up correctly. Their head of the Safety department is a good operator but even he may have trouble ensuring that all procedures and structures are in place if the expansion continues unabated.
