If Bay Area-based Virgin America's funky new safety video or the airline's stylish new uniforms designed by Banana Republic haven't convinced you yet that the company is the most fashionable airline in the sky, we have another bit of evidence for you. On February 29, 2012, passengers flying from JFK to LAX had the pleasure (assuming it didn't wake them from a peaceful nap) of witnessing a surprise on-board fashion show. Models strutted down the aisle wearing Banana Republic's Mad Men collection while music pumped through the speaker system.
Might one of us be lucky enough to bear witness to such a display on an upcoming flight? "We always have something up our sleeve, but nothing immediate (is planned)," Virgin America's Creative Director Jesse McMillin told us. Here's hoping they're in talks with Marc Jacobs.
