I would love to see VS add more destinations in the US.

Virgin said yesterday that it aimed to begin new services to Dubai next April and to Montego Bay, Jamaica, in July 2006. They will take its network to 28 routes, following on from launches to Mumbai, Havana and Nassau this year.

The US is not the be all and end all of an airline's operations. As was shown on 11/09 and also the SARS virus that having all your eggs in small basket's is quite a bad thing especially for a small airline - hence the need to expand into other markets and offer a variety of desinations to as may different corners of the globe as possible, so if there is a problem in one part, people will still travel to the other parts and keep you in business.

Just take a look at most of the US carriers with restricted global operations, most of them are struggling to stay alive.

The US is no longer the place to be in global commercial aviation, there are much better more profitable places to fly to.

Oh, the profitable, FUN way to fly.

Thank you to you and your teams for your contributions throughout 2004/2005. Let us make next year an even bigger success.

The big VS should choke. Gobble, gobble, gobble.

What does SARS and the US have anything to do with each other?

Both were big blows to commercial aviation, although they happened on different sides of the Globe.
