Virgin America Flies into DFW

Fliers are getting a new way to journey out of Dallas-Fort Worth airport starting today.

Virgin America, the high-tech airline by Sir Richard Branson, is launching two daily non-stop flights to Los Angeles. They'll add two daily flights to San Francisco International on Dec. 6.

A Virgin Airbus A320 will get all the honors today, including the water cannon salute, at a special welcoming ceremony on the tarmac at DFW.

Branson, Dallas mayor Tom Leppert, Fort Worth mayor pro-tem Danny Smith, and other dignitaries will be on hand.

Virgin America has won top honors from Conde Nast Traveler and Travel and Leisure magazines for its built-in entertainment features, all-red mood lighting and white leather first-class seating.
