24-January-2007 : You Can Help A New Airline Fly!

People complain about airline service and quality everyday. Yes, even me (OK, especially me depending on the day). Well Sir Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Atlantic, has been trying to get Virgin America off the ground for sometime and is being blocked by trivial U.S. laws and lobbyists from from major U.S. “legacy” carriers (Delta, United, Continental, Northwest).

Virgin produces an outstanding product all over the world, with Virgin Atlantic for the long hauls out of London and smaller “regional” airlines operating in Europe, Australia and Nigeria (yes, even Nigeria, they have really cool green paint on the engines). I think the product Branson wants to unveil in the U.S. would be an asset to all flyers in the U.S. He has the space at San Francisco Int’l Airport (SFO) he has the Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft (I have seen them parked and waiting in Montreal (YUL)) , he just needs the U.S. Gov’t to say OK……………..so what can you do? You can go here and sign a petition to let Virgin America fly!

I have been a fan of Virgin Atlantic since I was 16.I have flown Virgin between the U.S. and London in every class of service and find them all to be fantastic. I have had the pleasure of flying in a Virgin Atlantic 747 with less than 40 passengers and sitting and chatting with Branson for 3 hours on a private flight from London Heathrow (LHR) to Basrah, Iraq (BSR). This guy knows how to run an empire and run an airline … and he has even listened to frequent flyers by installing standard 110v power outlets in every seat, in both classes of service!
