Another thread stated that Richard Branson had been meeting with the US Air folks in Pittsburg and that it might involve Virgin America somehow.

Problems with financing...

Would the problems include being unable to find somebody to fund an airline that's probably doomed to fail due to overcapacity and extreme from the likes of WN, AS, and UA?

Well, you know what they say: "...what's the best way to become a millionaire?" "Be a billionaire and buy an airline!" (Especially in the US.)

There's plenty of market share to be had from the Legacies...

With the ownership restrictions, seed money is tough to come by. Their chief pilot responded to my resume update the other day, so he's still employed.TC

I hope Branson is able to operate the airline here in America, I hope one of the destinations is here. (LAS)
