Well, my fellow blogger Addison Schonland over at IAG is not stupid and realises that if he gives me a namecheck then I’ll do the decent thing. So please follow his excellent blog – I do, and he’s given me plenty of thought-provoking moments (although I’m easily provoked – see the post that I’m just about to create above this one.)
Addison draws attention to Virgin America’s Alpha+ pass of the FAA’s operations test. No surprise really, but the fact is that the recent US election result has played against the airline by giving people like Democrat Representative (of a small group of Minnesotans) James Oberstar the opportunity to destroy another few thousand American jobs. As a result I’m not sure what the airline’s chances of getting off the ground actually are.
