Richard Branson Kisses Jaunted

Yesterday, we attend yet another Virgin America new route launch party. Keep going VA! This time Sir Richard Branson and Co. have begun offering five-times-daily flights flights out of The Real Orange County (John Wayne Airport) to San Francisco.

The inaugural event began yesterday after take off in San Francisco with Branson twittering in-flight using the fleet-wide WiFi at 35,000 feet. Upon landing in the OC, Branson was greeted by the cast of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Orange County” and Red Bull athletes. And for those guests lucky enough to be on the inaugural flight? They received Bare Escentuals makeovers and Sunset Tan spray.

The party continued over to the Pacific Edge Hotel in Laguna Beach but before all that, we managed to chase Sir Richard Branson down for an interview, in his car.

Great quick interview.

You guys are becoming the TMZ of travel. Great interview and what a nice guy. Seems really down to earth. Virgin is definitely one of my favorite airlines to fly. Andy TheBrooklynNomad.com


Richard Branson just seems like a great guy. Any competition he can bring to American air travel is needed. It forces everyone to step their games up.
