According to my SBS logs, it looks like Virgin Australia VH-YVA may have come into Brisbane very late on the 30 June from Christchurch. I would imagine it is still to enter service.

Hi...

Apparently YVA entered service today as DJ725 MEL to OOL.

Regards,

Steve S

p.s. Not sure what they named YVA ?? ... but YFF is named Wineglass Bay.

I can confirm that YVA did indeed do DJ725 today
Here she is on departure from OOL as DJ730, back to MEL.



There isn't a name underneath the maiden on YVA, and there isn't 'Wineglass Bay' written under the maiden on YFF either:



No name on YFF

Qantas' newest B738 (VH-VZP) has rolled out on the Renton flightline, in full colours.

Also, Virgin Australia's newest B738 (VH-YIA) has rolled out, but has yet to be painted.
