Two week ago, we reported that Virgin Atlantic had completely suspended passenger flights for a week. We predicted it would be subject to a rolling program of cancellations and we were right.
According to Routes Online, Virgin Atlantic has now removed passenger flights until 10th May. A further week – until the 17th May – has now unavailable for reservation on top, making it highly unlikely that Virgin will operate passenger flights until at least mid-May.
It is still flying, however. The following routes are operating to carry cargo:
Hong Kong: alternating days
Los Angeles: daily
New York JFK: daily
Shanghai: alternating days from 2nd May
……. which includes vital PPE and medical equipment for the NHS.
