Just goes to show you can't believe everything you read on the Internet!!
It was widely reported that Virgin Australia Boeing B737-700 VH-VBY was due to leave the Virgin Australia fleet earlier this month - in fact we made a big song and dance about the possible departure of VH-VBY over a couple of Blog Posts!
Turns out that VH-VBY was in Brisbane for planned maintenance and it has since rejoined the Virgin mainline fleet joining the only two other B737-700s in the Virgin fleet - VH-VBV and VH-VBZ.
Other reports suggest that these aircraft will be maintained as operational spares.
