Virgin America is celebrating 10 years of bringing a rockin vibe to flying! On August 8th, 2007 the airline flew its first flight between San Francisco International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport.
Teammate Chris Garlington, a Guest Services team member in LAX, created this tribute video to celebrate the occasion. It’s pretty impressive!
Chris highlighted the contributions of many teammates, guests & friends who contributed their own stories and video clips to tell the story of this ambitious young airline.
The Virgin America culture is going to live on through people that create ‘Wow’ like this!
Virgin America, known for purple cabins, RED inflight entertainment system, and a hip culture set a new standard for inflight service. The airline has 65 Airbus A320 series aircraft including the new Airbus A321NEO.
In 2016, the company officially was acquired by Alaska Airlines. Virgin America is currently in the process of integrating with Alaska Airlines. By 2019, the Virgin America brand will disappear completely as their Airbus fleet will be repainted and cabins standardized to Alaska standard.
