I think that I answered my own question thanks to Planespotters. VH-XUG did or will become PK-SAT but has not flown under that registration, as it looks as though all three Super Air Jet A320s are parked and will soon be joined by a fourth, being PK-SAW.

Hi Lloyd, as far as my records show there are four ex-Virgin B738s currently in the US, they have all been in storage at GYR Arizona, with two still there - N341GC & N343GC and two currently in pre-return to VA maintenance in MCI, Kansas City - 2-VYFG & 2-VYFI.

This list is from the Virgin administration last year and doesn't include any other ex-Virgin B737s that may have been disposed of over the previous years that maybe in storage in the US after flying with other operators.

Thanks Tristan and James for your prompt reply.

OK on the 27th and 29th August there are 2 REX deliveries for BNE coming from Charlotte USA...

So i guess they could be the 2 American registered ones you guys mentioned.

Cheers and thanks.

Thanks for the information, Lloyd. This could mean that the lessor is getting maintenance and maybe painting done in Charlotte in the eight weeks prior to delivery to BNE.

Neither of the two B738s in storage at Goodyear have flown under their US registration as yet. They were VH-VUI & VUJ with Virgin. Will keep an eye on possible movements.
