Hi CommunitySeems Virgin has just dropped their daily VA1/VA2 combo between Sydney and LAX down to only 5 days a week - any inside info?Exisitng passengers on the dropped service can re-route, but do we know where the 777 utilisation is going to ~ March next year?:)

I would think maybe maintenance. Virgin doesn't have enough aircraft or slack in the schedule to have an aircraft out for heavy maintenance and still maintain full services

Changes are for heavy maintenance. Only a temporary reduction.

Has Brisbane been reduced? If they stay at 6x wk they will have more frequencies from VA then SYD.

I would be surprised if they reduced BNE as I hear the loads are very strong on VA and QF are the only other direct competition.
