Virgin America


As an avid traveller, I do keep an eye on various deals and travel promotions, and occasionally one catches my eye that makes me think “wow.. that ain’t bad”. This is one of those moments.
I’ve had a few E-mails come through today about a sale that Virgin Australia are doing for flights from about $799-$849 return to the States.

If you’ve ever been thinking about visiting the US at some point soon, then now is a good time to book if you want the cheapest flight there.

  • Departure dates are between: 14th Oct – 19th Nov 2014, 19th Jan – 31st March 2015
  • You are allowed to stay away: Up to 1 year
  • Baggage allowance: 2x 23kg bags (per person)
  • Fares are on Sale until: 9pm, 2nd July 2014 (or until they last)

Seats on this deal are not available every day, with Fridays and weekends having very limited availability. Midweek days offer the best availability for the cheapest seats.

Just a few days ago, Virgin America launched their new inflight safety video, “Virgin America (VX) Safety Dance“.
It’s good to see another airline ‘bucking the trend’ against the boring, run-of-the-mill inflight safety videos, and although I thought it was a little “high school musical” (or glee-ish), and potentially could eventually get a little annoying for those that fly with Virgin America often (think Richard Simmons), it is certainly quite interesting and think it does as intended: to get people to pay attention and take on board the underlying safety messages when flying.

Interestingly the music and lyrics for the video were created by former American Idol contestant Todrick Hall. The new video is going to be rolled out across Virgin America’s fleet in mid-November.

What do you think of the video? Is it catchy enough to sing and dance along?
