    Virgin America brand will stay around for the foreseeable future, according to Alaska Airlines CEO Brad Tilden.
    Two months ago Alaska Airlines acquired Virgin America in a deal valued at nearly $4 billion.

    And here's Alaska Airlines and Virgin Airlines Route Maps so you see see the overlap of routes as of 6/16/16. I suspect some of these routes will be discontinued. alaska-airlines-route-map.jpg virgin-airlines-route-map.png alaska-airlines-route-map.jpg

    Thanks for posting all this great information! I wouldn't be surprised if some of the routes are compressed. But it also looks like each airline has different strengths. Virgin has a lot more flights to New England/the Mid-Atlantic, and Alaska has more flights throughout the West and into Mexico. They complement each other well. Now the question will be: will the prices go up?
