Goodbye Virgin America , we love you!April 25, 2018
I would like inform you with a sorrow that many people who has unforgettable memories with Virgin Airlines flights including me will not like this news.
Two years after being purchased for $ 2.6 billion, The final Virgin America flights will be on April 24, departing San Francisco at 9:30 p.m. , the airline is formally no extra and integrated into Alaska Airways.
However that’s within the short time period. General, the newly expanded Alaska Airways system is going through something of an id crisis, particularly on former Virgin America routes. Alaska has apparently determined to not emulate the Massive Three airways (plus JetBlue) in providing a real premium choice on transcontinental routes. It has, nevertheless, determined to supply seat-only primary fares beginning someday this fall. The Massive Three airways particularly Delta—are steadily transferring onto Alaska’s West Coast turf.
Alaska Airlines will be launching a new non-stop route between California and New York and bolster its current New York service from its biggest gateway hub in Seattle.
So the new flight route will connect San Jose and New York JFK. Flights begin July 6, with Alaska Airlines offering one round-trip flight everyday on Airbus A320 aircraft.
