Airbus has delivered the first-ever A321neo to Virgin America now owned by the Alaska Airlines Group. The pictured A321-253N N921VA (msn 7589) was delivered in full Virgin America colors.
The latest generation aircraft powered by CFM International’s LEAP-1A engines was handed over to the all-Airbus operator, at a ceremony in Hamburg, Germany.
Virgin America currently operates a fleet of 63 Airbus A320 family aircraft comprised of A319ceo and A320ceo aircraft powered by CFM’s CFM56-5B engines.
Has Alaska decided to retain the Virgin America brand?
