Virgin Atlantic is taking off in a new direction. Not only does it have a new CEO but also has a new ownership structure. The airline, founded by Sir Richard Branson, is now majority owned by Delta Airlines and Air France KLM and its strategic direction is very much being shaped by this. CEO Shai Weiss took the helm this year having previously been the airline's CFO.  In an exclusive one to one interview with John Strickland we will explore his vision for the airline's future. What is the airline's growth strategy as it takes delivery of its first brand new Airbus A350's? How does it plan to reshape Flybe which, along with industry partners, it acquired recently? What are its plans for customers and how important will a new runway at Heathrow be for the airline? All this and more in a not to be missed interview!
