Virgin America started selling tickets on its website today. The little sister of Richard Branson's Virgin Atlantic, Virgin America is waiting for final approval from the FAA to start service on August 8.
Like Virgin Atlantic, Virgin America will offer low fares and the quirky service Virgin Atlantic customers have grown accustomed to. Their inflight entertainment system, called Red, offers 18 channels of satellite television, pay-per-view movies, music, and video games. Passengers can also order meals using the Red system.
Initial service will be between San Francisco and New York's John F. Kennedy, and San Francisco and Los Angeles International. Within a few months they will start service to Washington Dulles and Las Vegas, and rounding out their first year with ten different destinations.
