Virgin Atlantic has taken the decision not to fly its planes on 31 December this year.
The information comes from a booklet sent to its Flying Club airmiles customers, but the reason for Virgin Atlantic not flying is clothed in spin.
The company says: "Having talked to many of our regular flyers, most of them have told us that, whatever their plans to celebrate the Millennium, they do not want to be flying on the night itself."
Virgin added that it has rescheduled its services so that its passengers can be with their friends and families, "and so have decided not to fly on the night of 31 December 1999."
The company did not mention the Y2K bug in any of the the literature we have seen.
