Virgin America announced a New Route from Dallas to Austin with fares from $39 each way. Book by February and Fly by June 6. Travel begins to Austin, TX the home of SXSW starting April 28. With Virgin America you get those nice mood-lit flights between Dallas (DAL) and Austin (AUS) and nonstop service to Austin five times a day.
I will have to consider flying to Austin now instead of driving since it takes almost 4 hours to drive and this will cut down some time and not too much out of my pocketbook while earning Elevate points. My favorite airline now is Virgin America hands down in the US. I am glad to see them grow and grow and grow. I had hoped they had bought out American Airlines when they went bankrupt but instead the horrific merger with US Air took place. Glad to see Virgin America grow even if it is taking forever to do so. Hopefully they will pick up Orlando, Tampa, New Orleans, and grow to more US Cities out of Love Field (DAL) in Dallas, TX.
