Virgin Blue arrives in Adelaide

Virgin Blue commenced its Brisbane to Adelaide service yesterday. The red Boeing 737 didn't have one empty seat and flew under an archway of water jets in typical “Branson style” before it touched down. Virgin Blue CEO Brett Godfrey, crew and passengers arrived to a warm welcome from jubilant spectators.

More than 2,500 people have purchased the $99 one-way Brisbane-Adelaide special that is now selling for $149, not forgetting Virgin's “hidden specials” as we reported in the FlightChoice News ‘n' Views story Hidden airfare bargains uncovered.
