Your responses have all been great. I just wanted to add that I forgot to mention to add that Branson wanted the US law repealed not an exemption to operate here. I am sorry if this has any bearing on your posts or opinion.

I give him 5 years and he will be developing an US based airlines. I was tlking to Virgin head office about a week ago and the did not say what was happening but did imply something will be happening. Winair and Eastern should franchise into the Virgin name it will really make them grow. Virgin is a very trusted name!!

I just read on CNNfn that British Midland has applied to "run" 10 flights to the US. Does any know to where these might be?

I would be very surprised if they got 70% of these. I think they will focus on the East coat like New York and Florida. It would not surprise me if they tried for LA adn San Fran. I wonder what this will do to there relationship with Virgin.
Maybe they will work with Virgin and fly routes with them like LHR to ORD Virgin does not do that flight.
