    "The all new app that’s just plane better."

    Excellent pun.

    Wish I could fly with Virgin America to try this out. Looks very different to any other airline app I've seen and I'm curious how it works in the real world. Also it's nice to see an app go for that big whitespace big typography approach without being devoid of personality.

    Did anyone else noticed that the iPhone at "Notifications on the go" is reversed?

    To be honest, the experience was not that fun. It's more brand and less usable.

    Uhh, PDX is Portland, Oregon, not Seattle.

    Looks awesome. I fly to NYC this weekend on Virgin and will give it a spin!

    I like it, looks very intuitive.

    Finally - https://twitter.com/joe_blau/status/542330378589962244. Their mobile web experience was absolutely horrible.

    I've been testing the beta for the past few months and while it's beautiful, it definitely has some usability issues.

    Each tab has it's own prominent color, but there's no selection state, so you constantly feel lost / don't know which tab you're currently viewing. Animations on the home screen hijack your audio (assuming these are videos, v simple fix but still present in the GA release). Loading screens takeover the entire viewport, which often hang. Edge swipes to navigate back to a previous screen are disabled. :/

    Overall, I prefer the mobile web experience for the booking flow, email notifications for sales/promotions to my favorite cities, and Apple Wallet integration for pulling up my ticket.

    tl;dr: in its current state, I personally see no need for the app.
