Virgin USA?

Thu Jul 08, 2004 10:14 am

Hey what is the latest news on Virgin USA, my friend and I are in a battle over the status of it. Has it been approved yet, do they have the aircraft yet needed? Any info would be kindly appreciated.

I kindly advise you to do a search on Virgin USA. You will get detailed discussions on all that is/will be Virgin USA including their Airbus order and where they will be headquartered (NYC) with ops based at SFO.

According to sfgate.com, they had officials in South San Francisco (NW side of airport) and Burlingame (SE of airport, where I live) looking at office buildings.

Nice to see a local AS739X, I have friends in Burlingame, for me, I live over in the east bay, but love to drive past SFO every chance I can get.

Now back to the point in hand. I am sure it will be a little while before we hear any further "Big" news. I am waiting to find out who the investors are going to be and how much capital they are being given to start this thing up.

Can't wait to see the (hopefully red) A320's in and out of SFO.

This is just my opinion but I hope that Virgin America never takes off....I just don't agree with how this whole company is being planned out....something just strikes me funny... Sorry but thats just me.

I doubt it will succeed at SFO, but if it is a true point-to-point, then it has a chance. But it better hurry, the market is getting saturated fast. And they should have a system in place to differentiate themselves from the long list of LCCs, some of which have great service, like jetBlue.
