This is obviously a big deal for Virgin, any chance of a special livery or an updated logo? Or same, same....

I think the fact the winglets are embargoed suggests a change….

Looks like the only change is the virgin branding on the inside of the winglet, be interesting to see if the latest issues delay delivery.

There are major max production delays at the minute that might affect this delivery due to a defect in the stabilizer.
