First-Person Flight Reviews: Virgin America's First Class
It's true. We enjoy Virgin America. The airline's got high-quality entertainment, fun-but-classy crews, low prices and, most importantly, flies where we do. But enough about us. What does grizzled airline reporter Joe Sharkey think?
I was in no mood for a bad trip when I left for a 7 a.m. Virgin America flight to New York. And I didn't get one...The biggest surprise was the seat, which had 55 inches of legroom, compared with the typical 40 inches or less in first-class cabins on most domestic narrow-body flights
The in-flight service was excellent...The in-seat entertainment system had live television and on-demand selections that included about three dozen movies.
Beyond the run-down of the first class experience, Sharkey reports that in-flight WiFi won't be available until fall. Also coming this year are two cities "east of the Mississippi." Let's see: Chicago, Boston and Miami. That's three cities isn't it?
