Virgin America CEO David Cush says that there's no official date yet set for the first Mexico flights, but we're guessing they'll begin when fall temperatures drop the US back into jacket weather and people start dreaming of hot sun and bikinis again.
Up until now, Virgin America has focused on the big business routes: NY to LA/SF, up and down the Pacific Coast, Fort Lauderdale and even Toronto. Cabo and Cancun however mean that VX is eyeing the leisure market and looking to take flyers to both the boardroom and the beach. And if you think a lot of celebrities fly Virgin America between the coasts now, just wait until that LAX-Cabo route gets going.
Stay tuned for more as we learn more...
