Just booked here :D I need 1 TP to keep my FC AG anyway :D

Booked the 06:50 VS3046 from MAN on the 31st returning on the 16:10 VS3043 the same day.

£97 return, but still cheaper than BA. The base fare is showing as been £00.00!!

I'm in.

Fly up on Saturday lunchtime and back in the 06:50. Take that Carbon Footprint :D

Probably the only chance I'll get to do an inaugural flight, not that I'm expecting much hoopla.

Even though I'm only a 40min drive from MAN, think I'll book an airport hotel the night before so I then don't have to get up at stupid o'clock :D

I booked through Opodo, flight was £38, £3 Opodo booking free (essentially, their commission) and no debit card charges.

When I logged in to Virgin Flying Club the flight was there.

Hmmmmm this is probably just a VS IT hick-up but, the A/C type for the VS3046 is now showing as a 744!! (no seat maps available but if you click the flight number in your booking you get:

Flight number: VS 3046
Operated by: Virgin Atlantic Airways

Arrives: London (London Heathrow Airport)
Sun March 31 2013 at 08:00

I did notice the other days is was saying an Airbus A330-300 as well :w

Expertflyer is showing it as an A319 which I presume is actually correct.

We should formalise this a V Flyer event! Pete! Pete! Are you there? haha

I think I will travel up on the train the day before, as it will be by that time First Horizon Trains or whatever they are calling it. Danger of meeting up night before is that we all miss the flight!
