I think all of Virgin’s A321 NEO will be transfered to Alaska since they are merged.

Undeniable how truly amazing this plane looks! Congrats to Airbus and Virgin America. Hopefully because of the new merge, even though it’s far off, we see it remain in this livery rather than Alaskan.

She is beautifal a big day for the NEO family.

I guess they will be repainted into Alaska livery soon.

It doesn’t really look that long. The huge engines actually make the fuselage look shorter in comparison.

Same here, I have always imagined Alaskan Airlines only in their 737’s. Also one of the reasons I was surprised they were destroying the Virgin Brand.

Hmm your right! But the engines seem to have the right size for some reason.

Not gonna happen, Virgin won’t exist in 3-5 years and i wonder how many 321s Alaska will actually take.

Very big milestone not only for Airbus but the entire aviation industry. I think in the coming years leading up to 2020 we are going to see a lot of advancements in aviation, from the way planes are designed to the instruments they are equipped with.

I want to hurt myself now

Why is Virgin America still getting aircraft in their livery while they are merging with Alaska. Why don’t they just come in Alaska livery?
