What I've Learned from about Virgin America and SFO

By being talkative, I learn more random stuff. Plus talking is a skill, just like everything else.

What I've learned about:
Virgin America Airline (VX):
*Virgin America's reschedule policy: If you are early for a flight, you can reschedule for free and fly standby. If you're late for your flight, you can reschedule and fly on the same day for free! Or you can pay $25 for a guaranteed seat, instead of standby. If you miss your flight and can't be rescheduled on the same day, you must pay a $40 reschedule fee plus the difference in airfare.
-Virgin America in SFO is temporarily located in SFO's international terminal even though it is for domestic travel
-Virgin America doesn't check for ID when boarding gate nor look at ticket when board aircraft nor rip your ticket.
-They have a cool safety video. Strangely, they didn't show it the first time I flew. I think they forgot.
-Their in flight internet is still not working.
-In-flight entertainment is run on linux, redhat.
-Movies cost $8.
-They provide candy and a laptop sometimes at the waiting area.
-A store in SFO airport has a lease of about 10,000 per month (I was talking to a manager)
-For domestic travel. All you need is a ID such as California's Driver's license.
