Virgin America Routes and Schedules

Virgin America has quickly built up a small route network from the San Francisco hub, along with a smaller hub at Los Angeles. Both have several point-to-point transcontinental flights. However the lack of a decent route network on the East Coast is a major problem, as is the lack of some obvious point to point connections: as always, Virgin America say, they are growing, and these issues will be solved in time.

Indeed, Chicago was a major battle ground: Virgin America only gained access after the city took control of five gates away from Delta (in the US the tradition is that airlines own the gates, rather than the airport).
