Why I'll fly Virgin America every chance I get

About a week ago I had to fly down to LA to speak at The Twitter Conference and after hearing from some of my friends (on Twitter) about how much they loved Virgin America I thought I'd give them a try. The first surprise was that there was some sort of fare war going on because my flight was only $29 each way. Yep, $58 (plus tax) round trip! It actually cost me more to take Super Shuttle back and forth to my hotel in Brentwood than it did to fly back and forth from San Francisco.

Before I tell you about my experience I'll just come right out and say it: If Virgin America flies a route/schedule that I need, I will not fly another airline - period. The whole experience, every touch point, was great. The first thing I noticed was the cabin lighting - very cool kind of neon thing going on (check out the pics below). Secondly, the seats were extremely comfortable, good leg room and the head rest was actually functional and quite comfortable. But the thing that cinched the deal was the personal media/entertainment center. On the flight that morning I was able to channel surf between MSNBC and CNBC while surfing the net on a great wi-fi connection at 30,000 feet. I was literally bummed when the flight was over.

Anyway, if you have the chance to fly Virgin America I HIGHLY recommend that you do!  Check 'em out here: http://www.virginamerica.com
