Virgin America says it's about to change the face of U.S. air travel. The upstart airline has been given the green light by the U.S. Department of Transportation to begin operations, and is now selling tickets to San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas. Service to San Diego will be added a bit later.
Virgin America is promising low fares, excellent service and perks such as brand-new planes with cutting-edge in-flight entertainment, leather seats, massage chairs and mood lighting.
The airline plans to serve 10 U.S. cities within a year of operation and up to 30 cities within five years. Cities under consideration include: Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Hartford, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Nashville, Newark, New Orleans, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Providence, Portland, Ore., Raleigh-Durham, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Jose, Calif., Sarasota, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa and West Palm Beach.

I Love America. Why you ask? Well...we got 50 states-THAT'S PRETTY COOL! And we can do anything with our flag. Did you know that in some not-free countries they can't make their flags into coffee mugs, t-shirts, or nothing! Or else they get thrown in jail-it's totally illegal- but not here in the United States of Freedom, sorry, America. We can legally make our flag into coffee mugs, tuxedos, and my personal favorite, American Flag Bikinis! And no one should be thrown in prison for that. God Bless America!
