Today, Virgin America is strting their test flights. This is another step toward their certification process. VA 001T arrived into SFO at about 1130A and parked at A12. I was in ear shot of (FAA or DOT not sure) telling SFO that they have to use the words "Test Flight" on the arrivals board.
They even have luggage on the flight to test out the ground crews.
Looks like they are hiring for JFK too. Sounds like a nice product.
Our first route is from San Francisco to New York-round trip, of course. Beyond that, we're thinking initially about cities like Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Denver, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Dallas, Austin, Houston, New Orleans, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Orlando, Atlanta, Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Boston. Keep coming back for updates about specific routes as we get closer to launch.

Quoting JerseyGuy (Reply 9): Has VA announced, what its product will be like seat pitch, entertainment, etc?
Check the website for more info.
Quoting Virgin America: We have 9" screens on the back of every seat (with live TV and movies you can pause, rewind and fast forward to your heart's content), interactive games and tons of music. You can even order food and drinks from the darn thing.
