Default Pacific Blue aircraft

I was just thinking, because pacific blue is finishing up on its domestic nz routes in febuary this year or whatever, John's plan might be to put some of ex. vb aircraft back on the aussie register and get those vh registed vb planes in pacific blue colours back to virgin blue livery.

Wonder how vh-vuy is today if she is in service after yesterdays paint

Also VH-VUZ is on her way shortly and the 105 new 737NG's will start to be dilivered from july so the fleet is getting big

Cheers.

Will Virgin Blue will give the new livery to every single Boeing 737 in their fleet, given that some leased ones will be replaced by the newer 737NGs in July? Because the whole livery rollout will definitely take time.

@ Jack Melon

Pacific Blue Domestic services within New Zealand actually finished in October last year .

I don't think that there would be much of a hurry to repaint those aircraft into Virgin Blue livery if the Virgin Blue livery itself is due to disappear with the re-branding .

VOA ends its lease with Virgin Blue tomorrow (23rd Jan) & VOC ends its lease on 13th March. VUF & VUN terminate Pacific Blue Ops over the next 2 weeks with both of them to get a Pac Blue paint out & decal installations.

Do you have any idea when vh-vbu leaves the fleet? She is very different and i dont like her, no leather seats and no live2'air.

So VH-VBA, VH-VBB, VH-VBC, VH-VBD, VH-VBH, VH-VBI, VH-VBJ VH-VBK, VH-VBL, VH-VBY and VH-VBZ out of the -700's will stay for a while?
And the 737-8FEs will keep in the fleet?
But of course the new leased ones 737-8KG or whatever will stay for a long time.

VOA departed at 0800 from MEL, on its way to Subang, Malaysia. Must be pushing the limits of a 737's range!

Mr Borghetti will outline a name change, thought to be Virgin Australia, which will bring Virgin Blue, V Australia and Pacific Blue under one brand.
He is also looking for more planes, with analysts suggesting that either 300-seat A330s or 260-seat 767s may be leased for quick delivery ahead of a possible order for 290-seat 787s.
