I just about fell over when I saw the photo of the "Virginity Pledge".
That's an interesting bulkhead set up. Definitely a lot better than the typical bulkhead where the tray table is in the arm rest. The colored glass (I'm assuming some sort of Plexiglas) is definitely unique for separating cabins.
Some aspects of the IFE remind me of the new DL IFE. I have to say the food and drink ordering ability is pretty cool. That's something I'd like to see more airlines do, as not everyone wants to eat or have something to drink at the time they offer it onboard.

I would like to see them come to DTW. However, they will expand to every city that Virgin Atlantic flies to first and then look at other cities. That way they can keep the pass. on a Virgin product all the way from the west coast to what ever city that they will be flying to overseas.

Reminds me a lot of my first flight on JetBlue, right at the beginning of the airline in the early 2000's. I was so excited and still miss it a lot (wish it would fly out of LAX!). I have to visit a cousin in NYC...i know which airline I'm going to fly!
Best wishes to Virgin America, it's definitely a breath of fresh air (or jet blast, I'd rather say!).

The product is without a doubt awesome, but I can see many problems with it... Maintenance costs for the electronics is going to hurt VX badly... On B6's tv's, they're not touchscreens, yet they somehow manage to have scratches on them, imagine how it's going to be with VX since it is touchscreen. I also see the ordering and chat system being abused... It's a shame, but there always has to be someone to ruin it for everyone...

As a former F/A I used to go bonkers when call bells lit up. Can you imagine being in a cabin with 150 people being able to order from their seats...one item at a time?
I'll give it to VX- they have truly put the customer first and developed an airline that gives the customer exactly what they want - a reasonable fare and great service at the touch of a button. I would LOVE to have them at DFW....but we all know what a pipe dream that is!
