I'll be flying from Port Villa in Vanuatu to Brisbane in early July of this year on Pacific Blue.
Just wondering what the likelihood that my aircraft will be in the new livery of Virgin Australia, and include the newly added interior?

Hi Tom -- unfortunately, the odds are pretty low. Virgin Australia will only have a couple of the new planes in service by then, and as I understand it they're earmarked for domestic former Virgin Blue flying rather than Pacific Blue service.

VAA's Vanuatu flying is undertaken by VAA (NZ) which is the new name for the former Pacific Blue entity. The current VAA (NZ) fleet of 10 x B738's were not retrofitted which is why they have the premium economy offering rather than the revamped J class. They certainly do not have the excellent Boeing Sky interior (BSI) which has been evident since the arrival of VH-YFC in April 2011. Sadly there is no chance of you enjoying one of the new aircraft.
