I used Virgin America to get to Dallas.
The plane was an Airbus A319. According to Google, in 2011 that plane costs anywhere between $67-$104 million.
There were around 20 people, probably less, on my flight. I’m pretty sure Virgin lost a lot of money to make this trip happen.
I guess this is why they say being in the airline business is a terrible one to be in. As a consumer, I am really grateful for the safe, reliable and affordable trip provided by the Virgin staff today. Thank you Virgin team. Thanks for keeping us on schedule even though you probably could have cancelled it to consolidate the flights. It would have been a potentially major inconvenience for your customers but you chose not to do that.
