LAX News Re: Virgin America, XJet

Fri May 18, 2007 1:31 pm

Nothing dramatic...just FYI stuff:

(1) Express Jet has signed a lease with LAWA for space in T-6. This move is related to the DL ramp up in June.

(2) As reported previously by Laxint, Virgin America has also signed a lease for space in T-6. Additionally, according to LAWA, Virgin America plans to initiate LAX service to both JFK and SFO with a total of five flights daily.

Is that (Xjet) Express jet, or (CO) Express Jet?

Neither, it's (Delta Connection) Expressjet. All three are parts of the same company.

5 each to JFK and SFO or a total of 5 flights spread between the two?

Now the interesting part about Virgin America is that they will commit for 3-gates in T-6 in the long term.

So Obviously they have some substantial plans that could approach 30 daily flights eventually if they would get SWA style utilization out of them.

Does anyone know which gates they're signing on for? I thought that between DL, UA, and CO all of the gates (with jetways, at least) have been spoken for with only a couple doors-in-the wall that I thought had Delta logos on them.

The common use gates in T-6 are 66, 67A, 67B, 68A, 68B, 69A, 69B. With 67A, 67B and 69 being non-FIS, I'd guess those three.
