• I wonder if there is a silver lining here that there will be a major overhaul of their fare brands and pricing. Bringing an extra fare bucket into Red-e-deal might suggest they are looking to have more discounted fares to compete with VA or REX?

    It looks like VARA now have 4 A320's. The first 2 were ex skywest and the other 2 ex Tiger.I wonder if they are refitting these with WIFI to align with the 737's at least.https://www.airfleets.net/flottecie/Virgin%20Australia%20Regional%20Airlines-active-a320.htm
