VIDEO: Virgin America's Virgin Flight to DFW

Virgin America kicked off its non-stop flight service between LAX and DFW on Wednesday, December 1, 2010. FareCompare CEO Rick Seaney and I flew out to Los Angeles the day before, so we could be onboard the inaugural non-stop flight.

Rick chatted with Virgin America CEO David Cush and Sir Richard Branson. I, however, spent my time talking to the wonderful crew, and myself (yep, I talk to myself a lot).

Here are some of the videos I took while onboard the first LAX to DFW non-stop flight: Check out the rad RED personal in-flight entertainment system, learn how to make the only cocktail that comes with a Stetson called the "Giddy Up," and more. (Oh, and if I seem a little crazy, forgive me. I was up since 4:00 AM).
