I would imagine that since range is limited cities would include the likes of LAX, SFO, SAN, and similar west coast destinations. Probably pretty much wherever you see Qantas now.

If I remember correctly from various news releases by various sources, they are going to fly the SFO-NYC(not sure which airport most likely JFK) and possibly SFO-BOS. I heard that they were wanting these flights to bring in the money, not necessarily the best way but because of the demand they might be able to pull it off.

He was asking about Virgin Blue, not Virgin America.

Let's hope they choose SEA  Smile

My bad...too many virgin companies to keep them straight. I will vote for PDX, although it will most likely never happen.

LAX would be the obvious one, but SFO is another option, especially if Virgin America ever starts
