the airline is not happening because the CEO is too busy making a FOX reality show.

Hopefully VirginUSA won't launch.

All we need right now is another obnoxious LCC further screwing up the industry before landing itself in bankruptcy court...

It's no longer VirginUSA. If it does happen, it will be known as Virgin America.

WGW--What new-entrant LCC has landed in bankruptcy court recently? Sure, 9/11 weeded out a couple that were shaky but all I see are airlines that have been around 30 years or more.

The top three LCC's are making money and the Legaices aren't even close. It's the legacies' business model that is flawed, not the LCC's.

VA may or may not happen but if it does, it will take its market share from the hides of UA and AA and it will be operated by highly motivated legacy castoffs like myself... Big grin TC

This is the most recent post about VS America, and I think it might answer a few questions. AFAIK, the a.net community doesn't know anything more.

and Isp: I think you were joking, but just in case, Branson won't have much to do with the airline other than making money (if it makes any). The CEO will be an ex DL guy, mentioned in the above link.

Cheers,

Virgin has a good record of proving doubting Thomases wrong and wrong again. No one gave VS a chance against BA. People were wrong about Virgin Europe, Virgin Blue, Virgin Pacific, etc. In the end, it will be Richard Branson laughing all the way to the bank.

I talked to someone who interviewed with Virgin America yesterday morning... He said they will begin hiring in the spring.
