It will mean 2 airlines will do nonstop service between the two cities, with two different aircraft types (A359 with SQ and B789 with UA). It's also great that SQ's service will leave SFO in the morning to complement UA's nighttime flight to SIN.
SQ A359s are also used for SIN-HKG (SQ 890 & 891), but not daily...

well, I'm curious about their ULR variant...

Not exactly. A joint venture is a separate company formed by two (or more) parent companies to pursue a joint purpose. UA and ANA have a code share agreement.

Virgin Atlantic and Airbus finalise $4.4bn order for 12 A350-1000 aircraft

UK-based Virgin Atlantic Airways has finalised a $4.4bn deal with Airbus to buy 12 A350-1000 aircraft, including eight A350-1000s and four new aircraft on long-term leases. Delivery for the eight A350-1000s will begin in 2019 and the remaining four aircraft will be delivered from 2020 onwards and leased on a long-term basis from ALC.



The deal also includes a lease option for a fifth aircraft. Virgin Atlantic CEO Craig Kreeger said: “The size of this order demonstrates our absolute focus on investing in the future for our customers and our people, and confirms the strength of our business.

“The A350-1000 plays a pivotal role in our fleet programme, helping to create one of the youngest, cleanest, greenest fleets in the sky. “We’re looking forward to introducing this aircraft to our customers, as its impressive economics, fuel performance, and quiet flying offer an irresistible proposition that makes long-haul travel more enjoyable and better for the environment."

Once delivered, the aircraft will be initially deployed at Heathrow Airport to improve Virgin Atlantic’s transatlantic network on existing business routes, and subsequently at Gatwick Airport on the airlines’ leisure routes to the Caribbean region.

Airbus president and CEO Fabrice Brégier said: “This agreement allows Virgin Atlantic to set the standard on its network by being amongst the first airlines into service with the A350-1000, with an Airspace by Airbus cabin, offering superior comfort, including industry-leading 18in wide seats in‎ economy.

“These modern, efficient A350s will complement Virgin Atlantic’s existing fleet of ten A330-300s and offer Virgin Atlantic crews the advantage of familiarity with Airbus operating procedures around the network.” Meanwhile, Rolls-Royce has secured a $900m order from Virgin Atlantic for Trent XWB engines and TotalCare long-term services, which will be employed in the newly ordered 12 Airbus A350-1000 aircraft.

It's part of the ATI anyway you put it.

I think the Virgin Atlantic (VS) order for the A350XWB-1000 (A35K) could be more than 12 planes. I wouldn't be surprised if the order ends up being more like 16-18 planes.

Yes but you have to remember Virgin are also cancelling 9 A-380s (after the show some time)

An interesting development. Virgin Atlantic joins the ranks of airlines that will eventually be operating both the A350 and the B787, among other airliner types of course.

I wasn't sure if Virgin were actually planning to get A380s but it sure seems unlikely now!

Funny to see that they resused the escape port cargo door from the 1st A350-900 1st flight.

That's a long plane... I can't imagine how much longer the A350-2000/A350-1100/A350-8000 would be.

It isn't actually. The A350-1000 is 73,4 m long, only 1,1 m longer than the A380. And there are longer birds:
  • B777-300ER: 73,9 m
  • A340-600: 75,4 m
  • B747-8: 76,2 m
  • B777-9: 76,7 m

For some reason though, United does not put codeshare on ANA's Tokyo-Manila services... it would be much better, however, to see nonstop service with UA to Manila from the mainland US. But I digress.

The A359 with Philippine Airlines... I wonder when it will be built, especially it ordered six of that type.
