America loses its Virginity


The Virgin America brand has been officially retired.

The final Virgin America flight, VX1182 operated by Airbus A320 N361VA, touched down at Newark Liberty International Airport a little after 0530 Wednesday morning (local time), following its five-hour journey from San Francisco.

The airline, which commenced operations in August 2007 and had Sir Richard Branson’s UK-based Virgin Group as one of its shareholders, will continue to live on under the Alaska Airlines brand, following its acquisition in April 2016 at a cost of US$4 billion.
