Manchester To Orlando International

On March the first I am flying from MAN to MCO with Virgin Atlantic (Flight VS075) in economy class

I was wondering if anyone knows what Aircraft they use for this route and also what entertainment system will be available.

I have looked for this info On Virgins website with no joy. all i can find is that Certain Entertainment systems are only available on certain routes.

Thankyou
Dyls

VA to MCO

Aircraft should be a B747-400 with individual seat back entertainment system.

A little 'teething trouble' with the combining of threads has necessitated a few moves and deletions on this thread to sort it out. Hopefully we are sorted now!

Pure curiousity question for those who wondered.

P.S. I would assume being an LHR flight it would have to be an A346? Found no confirmation though...

wrong assumption
That flight would have been an A346.

Locating US Flight details

I know this has been asked before but I can’t find the thread. How do I find out which particular A321 aircraft operated US1495 22 November 2006 CLT-LAX?

Thanks

ZFT,

I can only find the LGW-CLT part of the flight which as US1495 was operated by N272AY, an A330.

Tried the usual sites but still only giving that aircraft. Does anyone know if the CLT-LAX part uses a different callsign?

yellowdog,

Interesting as US1495 sector I was on from CLT-LAX was definitely an A321.

Out of interest, what are ‘these usual sites’ you refer to?

ZFT,

There are two sites I use,

http://www.acarsd.org/acars_search.html

and

http://www.antonakis.co.uk/acars.php?page=request

both should be fairly self explanatory.

Every single BA Domestic and European destination out of Heathrow gets an Airbus, even the likes of Larnaca or Moscow (mostly B767s) see them from time to time.

Just heard that bmi are to wet-lease the 3rd 330 to Air India as from 15th December. Doesn't say which route it's on yet but they are looking for crews to spend Christmas and New Year somewhere in India! Guess they'll send the white one out there as that could be re-logoed most easily. Is this the return of the Instant Airline of long ago (707 s in the eighties)??

Which one is the all white one?
I know it is not going to be the one on repair that is going, so they will be very short on longhaul capacity for a week or two.

BM, the one being repaired will be ready by then. I imagine they'll put it on the Chicago or Vegas/Carribbean route and then put the Star Alliance one on the Air India contract. It'll be much easier to peel off the stickers from G-WWBD and put on some from AI.

So, as long as the repairs are complete, we'll be up on capacity by a third. 3x330 s and 1x767.
