Pour moi c'est aussi le signe que le fuselage de 222" n'est si mort que ça
L'enjeu serait de la rendre moins inconfortable à 9 de front dans une perspective de modernisation. Sinon le 2+4+2 en éco c'est assez confortable ?
Virgin Atlantic is assessing its alliance options, with SkyTeam emerging as the likely fit given the UK carrier’s new relationship with Delta Air Lines.
Late last year, Delta announced plans
to acquire Singapore Airlines’ 49% stake in Virgin Atlantic. As part of
the deal, Delta and Virgin Atlantic are planning to launch a cost and
revenue sharing joint venture on flights across the Atlantic.
In an interview with the Financial Times, Virgin Atlantic COO
Julie Southern has given the clearest indication yet that the two
airlines could also become alliance partners. “I suspect in due course
you may see us joining SkyTeam,” Southern said.
In an official statement, Virgin said: “Joining SkyTeam is not a
condition of the joint venture with Delta, although Virgin Atlantic is
evaluating its options in this regard. The airline has always kept
alliance membership under review but has been clear that it needs to be
in the best interests of the business.”
Virgin Atlantic celebrated the 30th Anniversary of its inaugural service today by announcing that it will introduce the B787-9 Dreamliner into service on the London Heathrow – Boston route from 28th October 2014. The new aircraft will be configured 31J/35W/198Y.
