They are going back to the states they are not coming back. Likely to be parted out.

Last flight March 2020. I pity the engineers who have deal with them. Probably landed in BNE with a million problems after only a 25 min flight.

Not owned anymore, and without the cargo door option fitted hard to see anything but parting out happening

I was waiting for this day to arrive. Looks like it has now come, thanks to Part 91, carriage of animals- no more restrictions!

A significant A220 order for the east coast, recapturing some of the previous ATR routes and adding a few more.

I don稚 think anyone would touch them regardless. 2 years plus parked with little engineering. 5 years left before hitting the scrap heap. The cost to get each ops ready would be $10m+ each, to then flog off for some lowball lease offer. Then the good fun of unexpected engineering surprises in the years following. Just pull it apart.

VPE is owned by the financier now. Considering the reported issues of getting VPE out of the country, I doubt any leasing company, freight airline let alone a passenger airline would be interested in this particular aircraft.

The financier is likely to get more $$ by sending the aircraft to the scrappers.

From The Australian June 10:
Virgin Australia chief executive Jayne Hrdlicka says the airline has returned to profitability and is considering listing on the ASX as early as next year.
I'm betting not too many of the bond holders will be investing in the hope of recouping their losses.

Jayne's popular in the same paper this morning:

Is Jayne Hrdlicka a bully? The evidence is thin.
