What type of plane ?

Can anybody help ? I am flying to Barbados at the end of May this year with Virgin, could anyone tell me which plane. I am slightly confused as I have been told A330 by one person and 747 by another.

It should tell you if you log into your booking, or do a dummy booking on Virgin. It tells you as part of the booking process.

The seat guru website tells you too, if you have your flight number you can put it in and it brings up the plane you are due to fly on.

It looks as if they use/ used both 747 and A330 on this route but as someone has already posted it is a A330 scheduled on the date you are flying.It is a A330 on the route today.

This site gives prety nice historical data on aircraft type on this rout. Seems to be 57% airbus and 43% 747
