Virgin America celebrated the launch of its newest route from Los Angeles International Airport to Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport with a red carpet bash at the Chandelier inside the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
To begin the festivities, Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson toasted Virgin America’s inaugural flight during a gate reception hosted by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas at McCarran International Airport. Guests included Virgin America president and CEO David Cush, Adrienne Maloof, singer Joe Jonas and actresses Jaime Pressly and Krysten Ritter.
Sir Richard Branson then helped host a red carpet launch party at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas to fete travelers who arrived on the airline’s star-studded inaugural flight from Los Angeles.
To mark the Vegas expansion, the airline also launched a new seat-to-seat delivery feature on flights nationwide, allowing travelers to send fellow guests onboard a drink, snack or meal using a digital seat map on the airline’s in-flight entertainment platform, Red.
