NOTAM: As some of you may know, Virgin America will be stopping operations in about 24 hours, and I thought it would be respectful to give our condolences to Virgin America and fly one last flight to the hub of the airline that overtook them, Alaska Airlines. Further info can be found out below.
(the Flight Plan will be p in a couple of minutes)
@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!
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.
