Last week, Virgin America and HBO celebrated the launch of the airline's new nonstop route from JFK International Airport to Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS) and unveiled the Entourage Class on the new flights. A custom Virgin America Airbus A320 Entourage Air took center stage at a star-studded send-off event before embarking on the inaugural flight, which will feature the in-flight advance screening of the first episode of "Entourage" Season 5.
Virgin Group Founder and Chairman Sir Richard Branson, Entourage creator and Executive Producer Doug Ellin, and cast members Adrian Grenier, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Dillon, and Kevin Connolly were on-hand to kick off the event by christening the new aircraft with Dom Perignon.
"At a time when many U.S. carriers are cutting routes and amenities, we're pleased to be adding flights to world-class destinations like LAS,” said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush. “We thought it was fitting to launch our nonstop flights from New York to the entertainment capital of the world, with HBO content fleet-wide and Entourage Class service in First Class."
During September, First Class guests on Virgin America's new non-stop JFK-LAS route will fly Entourage Class and receive A-list perks like noise canceling headphones, champagne, Godiva chocolates, Kiehl's Since 1851 travel kits, Altoids Mints and Entourage Air blankets and eye masks.
Virgin America's JFK-LAS fares start at $159 one way in Main Cabin and $744 one way in First Class.
