All this is excellent news especially for travelers from North America who opt to fly Virgin Atlantic to London, but then are forced to switch to other airlines to continue with short-haul Europe travel.
The airline will primarily focus on routes between Scotland and Heathrow, running multiple daily flights from Edinburgh and Aberdeen to London Heathrow commencing March 31, 2013. But now you're thinking, with what planes? We know; Virgin Atlantic can't exactly deploy their long-haul planes for these tiny routes, so they'll be leasing some Airbus A320s (like their buddy Virgin America uses!), so stay tuned for future announcements on what those aircraft will look like, inside and out.
