If that was true, it would be all over the aviation internet by now. I haven’t heard a thing about it…

No more Redwood callsign, Alaska acquired Virgin America. All Virgin aircraft will be operated as Alaska Airlines. Cabin retrofit will come soon.

They aren’t officially till april, but there “redwood” callsign will now be “Alaska” which basically means they are officially part of the airline

Thanks for letting me know! Just the way you said it, made it seem like there would be no more Virgin America planes flying in the air, and they’d officially be 100% merged.

Yes you may, Gate C42 is yours!

I couldn’t attend anyway

Sadly, my life subscription ends on the 18, sorry if I couldn’t come

@RTG113 They aren’t stopping all flights, they are just Stopping the virgin callsign and brand, like they said above. Alaska will be repainting all the virgin planes in the next 2-4 years. and from now on the remaining a321NEO orders will be painted in Alaska!

Basically the Virgin America operating certificate expires and alaska’s Will take over, which means, yes, all boring America flights will be operated under the Alaska group.

Can I have a gate please?

Yah, I added you. Hope to see you there!

Well since this is a farewell event for Virgin America, would it not make sense to at least depart out of the twrminal they currently use? You have C gates listed which are in Terminal 1 at SFO. Virgin America uses gates D50-D55 in Terminal 2.

I’m willing to join if the event is made more realistic by switching to the actual gates that they use.

And a fyi for anyone who’s interested;
The Virgin America brand is officially retired on April 24. Flights will still be operated as Virgin America. The only thing changing short term is the livery. Cabin retrofits begin in October.
