$109: San Francisco to Las Vegas

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Virgin America has become a preeminent domestic carrier thanks to its innovative comforts including mood lighting, seat power adapters and a state of the art in-flight entertainment system. The only downside is that they fly to a limited amount of cities. Hopefully, they’ll add more airports in the coming years.

Virgin America is a having a sale on many of its west coast and cross-country routes with one-way fares starting at $44, including San Francisco to Las Vegas for $109 r/t (after taxes and fees).

Travel is good between Feb. 2 and Mar. 10. Slightly higher fares are available from Mar. 11 to Jun. 20.

Tickets must be purchased by Jan. 25.

$239: New York to Los Angeles

Monday, November 30th, 2009

One reason we like this latest Virgin America sale is because the travel window is so big (12/3/09 – 5/23/09) with only eight blackout dates (12/18, 12/19, 12/26, 12/27, 1/1, 1/3, 2/12, 2/15).

As you see, not all of the dates in and around Christmas and New Years are completely blacked out, so holiday travelers can take advantage. This is a rare occurrence as airlines usually black out all of the dates in late December.

Also, this Cyber Monday Sale doesn’t end until December 8th, so you have ample time to make your purchase.

Virgin America charges $20 for each checked bag, but Wi-Fi is free on all flights until 1/15 to provide consolation.

One-way (before taxes)
$39*: San Francisco to Las Vegas
$39*: San Francisco to Las Angeles
$39*: San Francisco to Orange County
$39*: San Diego to San Francisco
$99*: Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale
$59*: Seattle to Los Angeles
$99*: Los Angeles to Washington D.C.
$69*: Los Angeles to Boston

$254: JFK to LAX + Free Wi-Fi

Monday, October 19th, 2009

The last time I flew on Virgin America my seatmate was bummed that “Gogo” wireless internet access was a paid service.  It hurt him even more to learn of the fee just after Richard Branson’s safety video.  He thought, “c’mon billionaire, you’re gonna charge me for internet?”

Well, no more disappointment now.  VA has partnered with Google to provide free Wi-Fi on all flights between November 10 and January 15.  This had to happen eventually.

In addition, for the next 24 hours VA has announced flights starting at $39* each way, including $99* coast to coast flights.  This sales ends tomorrow (October 20) at 7am (PST) and good for travel between November 10 and January 15.  The dates in and around Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are, of course, blacked out.

$275: LAX to JFK on Virgin America

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

Once you get past the neon, ambient, mood lighting, Virgin America is basically JetBlue with less legroom – but with a far superior in-flight entertainment (IFE) system! Actually, VX has several additional amenities, including a 1st class section, sans the drastic price difference, and two 110v plugs for every three coach seats, perfect for your laptop.

On the IFE screen, in addition to the basic cable channels, you can order and pay for food and drinks. The stewardesses then deliver it within 1-3 minutes! Why don’t conventional restaurants have this?

The IFE system also has On-Demand TV shows, movies, music and games. Some are free, some are for a fee. I watched an interview with Richard Branson for free and then paid $1.00 for an episode of The Office. You swipe your credit card at your seat, no fumbling for change with the stewardess. The kid sitting beside me didn’t have a credit card yet, so I swiped my card and he paid me in crumbled-up cash.

The IFE has an in-flight chat. You can chat with any passenger on the plane. You must first send an invitation that they must accept. My girlfriend accidentally sent 25E an invite, but I was in 24E. We laughed after he declined it. I then sent her one. She declined it and laughed. So, I ordered her a can of Budweiser and “Letterheads”. Before you knew it we were in NYC.
