Is it possible/legal? Have they thought about it?
For instance, making it so you could earn or redeem FF miles with an Virgin-brand airline on any Virgin-brand FFP. So for example, a Virgin Atlantic member could earn miles on Virgin America or Virgin Blue or Nigeria, etc. They would still be separate companies, just working together like airlines do in Star, OneWorld, or SkyTeam.

Good point -- so are there any legal restrictions to the different Virgin airlines doing something like this... in terms of cooperating more with each other, like airlines in say the existing alliances do?

Wasn't one of the reasons Virgin America were allowed in the air, was by appointing an American CEO, and proving that it had no ties (except name and money for start-up) with VS. Isn't that the same reason they cannot code-share? Or has this changed, or am I totally uneducated in this matter?
