Interesting...I wonder how much $$$$$$ was contributed to Ahhh-nold's war chest for the upcoming election.

I still haven't heard much about their business plan or their routes. And what is their two digit code going to be?

I am sure a check was wrote, just my thought. Well they have a plane and no certificate to fly it around.

Riddle me this - if Arnold genuinely feels that VirginAmerica should have their operators license than like any politician, what would be so wrong with accepting political donations?

The only solution here is to eliminate the entire premise of political donations all together and force politicians to actually serve their constituents based off of what they actually need, as many politicians would argue that they already do.

Needless to say Virgin America is good for California even if they may not be entirely great for the US airline industry, and that is what the job of the Governor of CA is suppossed to do - promote business in his State.

I don't care if a check was written or not. I agree that the review should be handled like any other, without all this protectionist BS. (Of course, if I had my way, I'd do away with the foreign ownership limitations altogether, but what do I know....)

Again if you are not familiar with the stink that VS put up when AA and BA wanted to code share to LHR, this is just pay back if you ask me.

I don't think there was necessarily a check. It's a new business in California that will provide new jobs in his state; why wouldn't he support it? Moreover, both Arnold and Virgin America have a certain European je-ne-sais-quoi.
