Virgin Atlantic launches A350-1000 operations to JFK

Virgin Atlantic became the first A350-1000 long haul operator in the UK yesterday following BA’s strike delaying their Dubai flights which had been deliberately timed for the day before. The animosity between the two remains remarkably petty.

Over the weekend keen Flightradar24 observers noted the G-VLUX flying around north Wales with a pair of chase aircraft at around 8,000ft.

The result is video footage for new advertising for the New Years sale campaign and a new set of beauty shots…

The second aircraft, G-VPOP, was delivered early last week.
