PSA: Virgin America (airline)

Virgin Atlantic has now introduced Virgin America! So far though, they only fly between SFO, LAX, NY, DC and Vegas.

www.virginamerica.com

I am DROOLING over their first class - massage chairs, you can order food on the screen, mood lighting...and it's only $149 each way to fly from SF to LAX! I've paid close to that for a regular coach seat sometimes (well, Long Beach to Oakland), so for a little more money and the fact that it's Virgin airlines, I'm so there.

And if that's still too much money for you, their coach section is only $44 each way. And $139 for flights between SF and NY. Sweet!

AHH-- I hope they come to Chicago soon. I'm obsessed with Virgin Atlantic. I flew from LAX to London on Virgin Atlantic and it was the best flight I've ever taken. The service was superb, the cabin was luxe, the food was delicious. I'm a huge fan.

Oh I know me too! I flew on it coming back from London and I loved it! All the free goodies, a menu in coach, etc. Plus, I was 20 years old at the time and they asked me if I wanted red or white wine with my meal (and for free) - so the underage drinker in me was excited, hehe.

Ahhh... they need to add the Maui San Francisco route soon! =) I will have to talk to Richard (Branson) about that!

Kristen - Hahahaha... even though you were only 20 when they offered you wine on flight, you were actually past their drinking age in England (which is 18)! =)

I've never flown on Virgin airlines. Is coach fancy, too or is it just first class? I flew first class once, but I wasted it by falling asleep.

I've been told that their coach is really comfortable too. You gotta love those first class prices though. When someone on here flies them let us know how it was!

They won't be flying to Hawaii anytime soon... at least not until they get some bigger airplanes. Hawaii is just beyond the safe range for an A320. It'll get there, but only 99% of the time. (sorry, bad joke) It's why jetBlue doesn't fly to Hawaii.
