The Wyld Stallyns travel Virgin
When attempting to get from your hotel to the airport turns into a traveler’s nightmare and navigating airport security takes up more time than your flight, the promise of an easy, comfortable journey home can take that bad taste in your mouth and replace it with something sweet.
Want to travel first class for a little bit extra? Check in online at Virgin America six hours before your flight and, if there’s availability you can upgrade to first class for a fraction of the cost. Seeing as how six hours before my flight was 3.00am and my flight was only a bit over an hour, I didn’t see the point of the upgrade, but it was nice to know it was there if I needed it.
Lines at the Virgin America counter at McCarran International Airport were long for those poor sods who hadn’t checked in online, so it was great to be able to bypass them all and just print out my boarding pass at one of the purpose-built terminals.
Virgin America’s entertainment system, Red, allows you to watch satellite TV and, yes, Bill and Ted was on! And because Red allows you to watch from gate to gate, you can plug in your own headphones or buy a set (in some top colors) for US$2.
