In a bid to put its long-running check-in woes behind it, Virgin Blue will be switching off most of its computer systems from 8pm tonight until 5am on Thursday — meaning no online bookings or check-in, no phone sales, and no kiosk check-ins at airports. If you’re flying with Virgin Blue during that time, get yourself to the airport even earlier than usual; if you’re planning to fly, either book this afternoon or wait until later in the week.

Virgin Blue Basically Offline All Wednesday
