What’s the story with the Virgin Triple. Been down for weeks and now apparently now being examined by Boeing in Victorville CA?

Heard it was some kind of fuel tank issue.

Is it still under warranty? Seattle's only 2 and bit hours away. Isn't Victorville the aircraft boneyard?

So what’s happened to the flying schedule? Can imagine this would be costing a fortune.... the perils of a small fleet being flogged.

Booked a trip to the States on VA last week. A lot seats being sold on Delta aircraft, by the looks.

The fleet has a revised schedule. Instead of sitting on the ground in LA for 15hrs it appears they are using this time to squeeze in another leg back to Oz. At the peril of changing a lot of people’s travel plans though.
