Flyers who can member the wonderful days PSA Airlines can relive the experience on Virgin America which offers a fun, friendly service reminiscent of the once popular West Coast airline. The airline put the enjoyment back into flying when it debuted in 2007 and continues to please passengers most of the time (there’s an occasional glitch, but things happen). In addition to a Main Cabin that offers custom leather seating with a deeper, more comfortable pitch, Virgin America’s First Class cabin—which is very popular ergo hard to book, and pricy but worth it– offers plush white leather seating with 55 inches of pitch, 165 degrees of recline and lumbar massagers. The carrier’s Main Cabin Select is worth the extra tab too choice because you get 38-inches of pitch, free food and cocktails, an all-access pass to media, dedicated overhead bins and priority check-in/boarding. The Red® entertainment platform offers guests their own seatback touch-screen, with +25 latest release films, TV, interactive maps, videogames, a 3,000 song library, surround sound technology and an on-demand menu, which allows flyers to order from their seatback any time during a flight.
By-the-way beginning in May Virgin America will begin flying from Los Angeles to Honolulu and then in June it will start service from LAX to Maui. The carrier also offers convenient non-stop flights from LAX to Fort Lauderdale.
