It’s Time Again for Virgin America Day at AT&T Park – Lots of Giants Promotions Plus a Red City Hall

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Well it’s the talk of the townAugust 6, 2011 is Virgin America Day at AT&T Park, so all attendees will get a Virgin America 2 for 1 flight voucher. So if you’re into the Phillies…

But dynamic pricing appears to be at work, so don’t be looking for any of those $1 seats (that come with $10 in fees) that the Giants offer sometimes.

And, oh yes, August 8th, 2011 is Virgin America Day in the 415, so that’s why City Hall will turn red at night for a few days. (Just a guess, but I don’t know how else you’ll be able to tell it’s VA Day 11.)

And Virgin A will is a having a $49 a ticket sale on some flights. All the deets, and there are plenty, are below and after the jump.

SAN FRANCISCO, April 22– Virgin America, the award-winning start-up airline, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2009.  While driving growth against the backdrop of a contracting industry, the start-up airline made significant top line progress in its second full year of operations.  For full year 2009, Virgin America reported a $48 million operating loss on revenues of $548 million – a $140 million (or 74 percent) year-over-year improvement over 2008.  In 2009, the Company also reported its first quarterly operating profit in the third quarter.

The airline narrowed its operating loss by $11 million year-over-year in the fourth quarter, improving its operating margin by 10.9 points.  Virgin America also reported a 47 percent increase in scheduled service capacity year-over-year.
