Virgin America has been named the best domestic airline in the U.S. in a recent survey of over 25,000 business travelers, the airline announced on Wednesday.
This has been the fourth consecutive year that Virgin America took the top honors for Best Premium Class among domestic airlines in Conde Nast Traveler's 2011 Business Travel Poll, it said.
“The annual independent survey of the magazine's business travelers ranked Virgin America as the top U.S. airline for Premium Class service for the fourth consecutive year, as reported in the October issue of Conde Nast Traveler – on newsstands September 20, 2011.”
An independent firm asked over 25,000 Conde Nast Traveler readers identified as business travelers to rate hotels, airports and airlines on a variety of criteria. Virgin America rated an overall score of 90.2.
We're humbled that the discerning business travelers who fly the most have once again ranked our service the best in the domestic skies, said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush.
“We're offering unrivalled value – with our Main Cabin Select service featuring amenities which most legacy airlines cannot duplicate in their First Class services, he added.
With topnotch service, beautiful design and a host of high-tech amenities, Virgin America has built a loyal business flyer following since its 2007 launch, the airline said.
Virgin America was the first to offer WiFi fleetwide as of May 2009, and offers various other modern business traveler features such as standard power outlets near every seat, personal touch-screen entertainment and the ability to order food and drinks at any time during a flight right from the seatback screen.
