Virgin America announced today that it has revised its application to fly in the US, placing additional distance between the carrier and Richard Branson. Hard to tell what’s going to happen there. I put the odds at 50-50 that it will fly. Pretty useful prediction, eh?
If you want to see what you’re missing with Virgin America, check out its new website at letvafly.com. Great stuff there about the cabins on the planes, which feature a comfy first class, all sorts of entertainment at your fingertips, and nice leather seats. I’ll call it JetRed. Quaking in their boots should be Continental, whose 737s with 1980s style entertainment units will be competing head-to-head with Virgin America on their transcon routes. Good luck with that!
