Rampant Speculation: What's Next for Virgin America?
So where will VA land next? Rumors are swirling that Chicago and Vancouver are on the radar, and Miami is also a possibility. The chatters over at FlyerTalk have a nice thread going, too, but it's a bit more "wish they were coming to (city)" than actual information.
Given that Virgin's focus is on what they call "premium airports," we're apt to believe that the carrier will pick MIA over Fort Lauderdale if it breaks into south Florida. And despite O'Hare's congestion problems, we don't see VA pulling a Skybus and scouting a feeder airport outside Chicago proper.
We sent a message to Virgin for comment, but so far the airline's stayed mum on future plans.
