Skybus Cabin Info?

Wed Nov 28, 2007 3:34 am

Hi there..

Does anyone know if Skybus Cabins have the Same Colored Lighting that Virgin America has on their Airbuses? Also, does anyone know what the seats look like? I'm just curious..

there is a video from ABC's nightline from last week you can watch here:

they do not ave the "mood" lighting that VX has. the 2 aircraft that had been slated for VX have 144 leather seats in all coach layout and 32" seat pitch (approx) and the newer ones are 156 seat layouts.

I've been on both of the VX reg'd planes; in fact, I was on the Nationwide jet last week. I can't tell if either of them have the colored lighting.

The seats on the VX planes are grey & have the seat pocket toward the top of the seat, above & behind the tray table. The seats on N551SX (which I was on tonight) and I'm guessing 552SX as they're both from Skyservice have black leather seats with the typical seat pocket. These planes also have audio controls in the armrest & drop-down video screens, though they aren't used.

Are there any pictures available of the cabin, and are they going to get their "own" interiors? Sounds to me like another "Valujet" where they just keep the interiors of the previous owner.  Angry

Check out the video Itsnotfinals posted. You can get a glimpse of the cabin at 1:17.

Wish I could, my computer is messed up and half way through the ad, it jumps to a search page. Hopefully someone will post it somewhere else.

You are not the only one. I was able to hear about 75% of the audio and I saw about 4 still images during the entire story. The window that opened to play the video is still open and will not close, even by clicking on the X in the upper right hand corner, or by right clicking on the taskbar icon and choosing close. I had to kill the window in my task manager, which also killed my entire Firefox sessions, including this one and this reply, but thankfully Firefox was able to restore my last session with this reply still intact.
