Flightglobal publication Airline Business went on an around-the-world tour with Sir Richard Branson celebrating V’s launch. The May edition of Airline Business featured our exclusive interview with the CEOs of three Virgins: Brett Godfrey of Virgin Blue, David Cush of Virgin America, and Steve Ridgway of Virgin Atlantic.
