Thanks for the Little Red check. I must say, the 21 passengers represent a disappointing load for this 180-seater A320 and particularly at this time of day.
I believe the seating on these Aer Lingus planes is quite dense.
The cabin crew are from Aer Lingus, if I’m not mistaken, even though dressed in Virgin Atlantic uniforms.
I would have thought there would have been more connecting passengers (in a previous report you mentioned just one passenger) because this flight VS3044 (dep 1855, arr 2000) is a prime connecting service for Virgin’s long-haul flights to Delhi, Dubai, Hong Kong, Lagos and Sydney.
