Each ex KLM 73G will take about a month of heavy maintenance, cockpit and cabin reconfiguration in Singapore. Aircraft will overlap there. First one should make it to Brisbane early October. All 7by March/April.

Expect the regos to be in the VH-Nxx series. Not numbered regos yet.

Aren't they operating under the VA AOC so that they can be used anywhere on the VA Network

Yup. They can be flown by any Virgin 737 pilot on any Virgin route. The existing VARA F100 pilots will effectively transfer to the VAA AOC and pay/work conditions, they can fly any 737NG anywhere. And potentially Max in the nearish future. The work rules will be altered to permit some of the early morning charter ops.

6 more 737-700s are now listed in the 'Future' fleet for VA, no VH- regos yet.
All are ex-KLM, PH-BGX/BGK/BGL/BGT/BGU/BGW

Interestingly, 3 are still flying with KLM.
