2 versus 4




So, I realised that two planes burn less fuel than 4 planes. Wait, two engines burn less fuel than 4 engines. Or something like that. My advisors tell me this is a smart move to make.

So Virgin Atlantic is getting rid of our 4-engine planes, and replacing them with 2-engine planes. I've been told that even if you're in a Virgin Atlantic flight over the ocean and one engine goes up in flames, there's still a pretty good chance you'll live. (Read those safety cards!! In the event of a water landing...)

Anyway, as an airline, we need some good press on "combating global warming," so it's something we're going to publicise. (We were going to do it anyway since two engines are cheaper than 4 engines, but this way we get yet a little more attention.) This is business, Virgin-style.
