Virgin America Launches…With Just a Slight Tornado-Related Delay

Virgin America launched its inaugural flight yesterday, which was delayed a bit because of an insane storm in New York that included a tornado touching down in Brooklyn.  The OTR wasn’t invited to the party (sniff sniff) but those who were have posted some info about the first flight (see Jaunted’s coverage here, and USA Today’s here and, as of today, on their main page).

  1. Congrats Virgin America. Their chat system sounds interesting. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to try it out.
