Excuse our excitement, but YAAAAY!
So, what'll it feel like? Apparently like being on a Virgin America flight, just without the cramped quarters, according to their press release:
The Virgin America Loft extends the airline’s signature cabin experience into the airport space with amenities like a cocktail bar and dining experience with a Virgin twist – including a “Lofty Libations” artisanal cocktail selection. As the only airline to offer both power outlets near every seat and in-flight WiFi on every aircraft, the Virgin America Loft is equipped with ample power sources and complimentary WiFi.
How to get into the Loft:
· Be Virgin America Elevate Silver or Gold (you'll get a number of lounge passes every year, no matter what class you fly)
· Purchase a day pass for $40 if you're flying Virgin America in any class, or one of their partner airlines in any class.
· Win your way in. Right now on social media, Virgin America is giving away Loft passes during a "12 days of #VXLoft Passes" contest. Follow @VirginAmerica on Twitter for more details on that.
Aside from the fact that only LAX has a Virgin America Loft right now, the only other downer is that travelers who've purchased First Class still need to buy the $40 pass to the Loft. It'll be interesting to see how busy (or not busy) the Loft gets before flights, using this strict admission policy.
