Would anyone like some airplane toilet paper?
This is because Virgin Australia is donating toilet paper from their grounded aircraft!
Here is The article:
Following a shortage of toilet paper in Australia, after panic buying shoppers stripped the supermarket shelves, Virgin Australia has decided to donate all the loo rolls from its grounded aircraft. While this might sound a bit like an April fool’s wind-up, Virgin Australia appears to be dead serious about donating the toilet paper to charity following an acute shortage of inventory due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On their Social media, they posted: “Virgin Australia has today flipped April Fool’s Day on its head, turning the airline’s annual prank into a Reality”
Virgin Australia has canceled all international flights
Now, in a bid to help vulnerable members of Australian society, the airline says it will “rescue” toilet paper from its 125 grounded aircraft and storage facilities.
Once the toilet rolls have been collected, they will be donated to the airline’s community partners that include the Salvation army.
The Salvation Army will help distribute the toilet paper
After learning of Virgin Australia’s initiative, spokesperson for the Salvation Army Major Bruce Hammer said:
“It’s so wonderful to see such a strong community spirit in the team at Virgin Australia. The Salvation Army will ensure any donation of toilet paper reaches the older and vulnerable people in our communities during this unprecedented time of need.”

For the time being, Virgin Australia is operating a limited number of domestic flights that are deemed as being essential and are planning to resume international flights starting on June 14th.
