Default Virgin Atlantic A346 in billboard livery.

Well it's taken a while, but they finally resprayed an A346 (G-VEIL) in the new livery. Looking pretty good I'd say...

Thumbs up Re: Virgin Atlantic A346 in billboard livery.

I've made a commitment to get up early and drive down to the airport tomorrow morning to catch her. Unfortunately, they're predicting light rain. Maybe nicer photo opportunity for the take off later in the afternoon.

IMO one of the worst liveries currently in our skies.

I didn't like it initially but is has grown on me a bit. I think they should have kept the union flag winglets though...

Yes G-VEIL came to Sydney today in the new livery.
Too rainy to go outside though.

Looks a lot better on the A346 than the 744, But I think the A330 looks the best, now if only they had the 77W !

Very nice, the metallic red looks good on the A346.
