Airbus A321

Virgin Atlantic leased a single Airbus A321 G-VATH “Hellenic Beauty” from GECAS to operate the London Gatwick/London Heathrow - Athens services following the departure of Airbus A320 G-OUZO.


The aircraft was delivered in Silver Dream Machine livery and its tenure with the airline was short lived as the Athens route was dropped in late 2011 with the aircraft being sent to Filton for storage.
