Virgin America Wins Best Low Cost Airline In Business Traveler Awards

Posted in Airline News, Virgin AtlanticNo comments

Virgin America, the new airline on a mission to make flying good again, today took the award for “Best Low Cost Airline in North America” among domestic carriers in Business Traveler Magazine’s 2008 “Best in Business Travel” Survey.
“We’re honored to be recognized as the top low-fare carrier choice by the most selective and experienced travelers,” said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush. “Virgin America offers attractive fares and next generation amenities that appeal to today’s business travelers. With inflight internet fleetwide by Spring 2009, we’re continuing to innovate and deliver a flight experience that keeps business travelers comfortable, entertained, and connected to their work and lives from 35,000 feet.”
The Business Traveler “Best in Business Travel Awards” are based on a survey of four thousand randomly selected subscribers who were given open-ended questions about the overall quality and service provided by low cost carriers operating in North America. Business Traveler is the world’s leading publication geared towards frequent business travelers.
“In the highly competitive market for the premium business traveler, Virgin America has demonstrated that it has its finger on the pulse of what these executives are looking for, and that it consistently exceeds expectations,” said Business Traveler editor in chief Eva Leonard.
Launched in August 2007, Virgin America offers amenities that are unrivalled in the domestic skies. The carrier boasts the youngest fleet in the U.S., with new Airbus A320-family aircraft that feature custom-designed leather seats, standard power outlets for electronic gear near every seat, the most advanced in-flight entertainment system in the U.S., and Gogo Inflight Internet already equipped on two aircraft (with fleetwide installation by Spring 2009). The Red(tm) Inflight Entertainment system allows guests to control their own flight experience with touch-screen food ordering, 25 on-demand films, seat-to-seat chat, the ability to create a play-list from over 3,000 MP3s, and live television (including CNN and CNBC) — all accessed via touch-screen or remote control.
The carrier recently announced a new cabin option, Main Cabin Select, which offers 38-inches of seat pitch, complimentary food and cocktails, an all-access pass to the Red system’s countless entertainment options, and priority check-in and boarding. Virgin America’s First Class cabin offers international-grade amenities, with priority check-in and boarding and plush white leather seats with 55 inches of pitch and lumbar massagers. The Main Cabin offers custom-designed leather seats with a deeper, more comfortable pitch.
