The first of four Airbus A330-200 (GDS code 332) to join our fleet began operating from 1 March 2018. These are Virgin Atlantic aircraft, operated by our own pilots and world class cabin crew. These planes were introduced to our fleet assist with the industry-wide issue with the 787 Rolls Royce engines, and were key in ensuring we could still fly our customers where they needed to go. Because of the necessity to get them into service as soon as possible, they started flying without the usual Virgin Atlantic seats and interiors. However, we made sure there were lots of extra touches onboard, like our exclusively designed Happy Socks in Upper Class, gorgeous barista style coffee, WiFi available in all classes and the usual brilliant Virgin Atlantic inflight entertainment.
We've now completed a full refit and refreshed the interiors of our A332 aircraft. Our A332s are Daydream Believer (G-VMNK), Scarlett O’Hara (G-VWND), Honky Tonk Woman (G-VMIK) and Strawberry Fields (G-VLNM).
