Virgin Atlantic published some photographs yesterday of their first A350 in the paintshop.  I have dropped two of them into this article.

This follows the release of similar BA pictures just a few weeks ago – see here.

The aircraft will be delivered in the next few weeks and after testing will be rostered on the New York JFK route – as will the second and third A350 deliveries!  Hopefully we can try it soon.

Here is my article on the new Upper Class Suite and here is our report from the A350 launch party.
