The first Virgin Atlantic Airways Boeing 747-400 is sporting the airline's new colour scheme. A total of 25 Virgin aircraft - six 747-400s, eight Series -200s, 10 A340s and one A320 - are due to wear the new colours by the end of next year. The aircraft will be repainted during scheduled maintenance. The new look is part of a $64 million image and product upgrade, which includes an upper class revamp featuring lie-flat bed seats and double sleeper seats (Flight International, 16-22 June).
