Virgin At JFK In 1997

Mon Jun 07, 2004 6:55 am

Does anybody know what terminal Virgin used at JFK around this time?

I flew twice to LHR. I know once I left from the International Arrivals Building (this was around 1998)....Before that did they fly from the Delta terminal?

I think they did fly out of T2--delta domestic and into T3--delta int'l.

VS flew out of the Delta Terminal until the end of 1996. They had a code share agreement in place with Delta, but it didn't work well.

Virgin moved to Terminal 4-W (the old one) in 1997 and in 1999, it then moved to Terminal 1, soon after it opened.

In 2003, VS moved back to the newly rebuilt Terminal 4.

I flew VS on the JFK route during December 97 and January 98. I know it was from T4. I can clearly remember this, though not for good reasons as T4 back then was very different from what it is today.
