747 or 330-300 to Barbados in September.

Just about to choose my seat on Virgins VS029 to Barbados in September and it is showing the seat plan of the 3 cabin Airbus 330-300. On past flights it has always been the 747 on this route, does anyone know why the change in Aircraft?

"does anyone know why the change in Aircraft?" - Can only assume that VA have determined there is not the demand for the number of 747 seats on this route or they is higher demand for the additional seats on the 747 on another route.

Thanks for that TomC.

We flew this route in March and the 747 was only half full, so it looks as though it could be that they are using the smaller plane.

Have a look at the Barbados Forum on Trip Advisor. There are a couple of threads on this topic.
