I love Virgin Atlantic’s fleet! It’s sad that they retired the A340, though the decline in quad jet aircraft was inevitable. Airlines are retiring their A340s, A380s and 747s like flies. I’m just bracing for when British Airways finally retires their Boeing 747s. That will be a very sad day for us all, they were by far the biggest user of the passenger 747-400.
The photos are ready!

Made it to cruise! If that far jet wasn’t visible people would easily mistake this as a VS A330

Safe landing in SFO!
I hope y’all enjoyed!
Oh trivia! The winner of this gets a virtual high five.
Before Virgin America went under, what one airport in the world had service from all three Virgin airlines, Virgin Atlantic, Virgin America, and Virgin Australia?
I believe that’s correct, but I’m not the host of the trivia.
Great shots nonetheless! ;)
The thought of that just makes me depressed 😔
SFO or LAX
Edit: Just read the answer. Lol
Very nice picture! A340 is an interesting one 😂
Wait what NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Man, It’ll be sad to see the 747 go. It’s such a beautiful aircraft, and British took care of their fleet well. Though I once flew on their 747 to LHR a couple of years ago, so at least I enjoyed it while it lasted…
Awesome pictures! The A340 is also an amazing aircraft!
Fantastic shots! Looks like it was a great flight. :)
