Browsing the Virgin Atlantic website this morning, I noticed something odd - at their careers section, under location, they have Norfolk listed. There currently aren't any openings, but I thought it was interesting. With the upcoming Jamestown 2007 celebration, and Monarch's upcoming charters into ORF, could VS be looking at taking a bite, too? I also noticed that Norfolk is now listed on Virgin-Atlantic.com's drop down lists. Surely this must be related?
When Monarch's 767 lands in Norfolk in May, it will utilize gate 1, Norfolk's only international gate, but will not be a daily service, leaving the gate open on other days of the week.
Or, will VS just rely on its Continental code-share to funnel people to Norfolk via EWR/JFK/IAD?
