Jaunted's 'Little Red' Series:
1. Par-tay on the tarmac!
2. The flight experience
3. Where it flies and for how much

We gave our verdict on Virgin Atlantic’s new domestic UK service, Little Red, yesterday; now for the small print.

Little Red flies three routes: from London-Heathrow to Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Manchester, all intended as feeder destinations to get locals to Heathrow for Virgin Atlantic's long-haul flights. There are 26 flights a day in total—six each way on the Edinburgh route, three for Aberdeen and four for Manchester. All are perfectly timed to connect with the rest of VA's network.

There’s a launch sale on right now that means you only pay the taxes. Unfortunately, since this is the UK, that means you’re not getting a bargain; it ends up £98 for a return flight between London and Scotland, and £103 return from Manchester.

Yesterday we brought you coverage of the fanfare upon the Edinburgh arrival of Little Red, Virgin Atlantic’s new domestic UK service, flying from London-Heathrow to Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Manchester. Today, it’s time for a photo dump...but also some thoughts on the interior and the overall LHR-EDI flight experience.

Was it as well planned as Branson’s kilt-flashing incident?

The short answer: yes, pretty much.

Remember a couple of years back when Richard Branson lost a bet with Air Asia’s CEO Tony Fernandes, which meant he was going to have to dress up as a female flight attendant? That may not have come to fruition—although, according to Fernandes, the time is nigh—but he went one step better worse further early this morning at Scotland's Edinburgh Airport.

Launching Little Red, Virgin Atlantic’s domestic UK service and a major step for the airline, Branson donned a kilt and then dressed down by flashing us.

Ready, Steady, Almost Go for Virgin Atlantic's 'Little Red'

March 4, 2013 at 8:53 AM | by | Comments (0)

Usually when we talk about Virgin Atlantic we’re chatting about their awesome international long-haul service, but this time we're taking a break from it. Don’t worry—they’re still heading to plenty of overseas destinations—but they’re now also doing the domestic thing. We heard that this was in the works a while ago, and they even had a little contest to name their newest planes. Well, it looks like planes and names have been somewhat finalized, and it’ll be "Little Red" doing the flying over in Europe and the United Kingdom.

The new carrier-within-a-carrier will be known as Virgin Atlantic Little Red, and they’ll be doing most of their flying to spots in and around the UK. The new routes are heading to and from London-Heathrow Terminal 1. From there you’ll be able to fly to spots like Aberdeen, Edinburgh, and Manchester.
