Virgin America Airbus A320 named "Runway Angel." You can name your own aircraft if you have a space $60k.

Virgin America Airbus A320 named "Runway Angel." You can name your own aircraft if you have a spare $60k.

If you have an extra $60,000.00 burning a hole in your pocket, Virgin America has a unique holiday gift idea for you. For that amount of money, not only can you have an Airbus A320-family aircraft named whatever you want, but you and 145 of your friends can get a flight to anywhere Virgin America flies.

“We did it as part of a partnership with Gilt – as a pretty unique, once-in-a-lifetime item for their holiday gift list.” Abby Lunardini, Vice President of Corporate Communications for Virgin America explained to via email. “You may recall that we teamed up with them a few months back as well for Gilt packs (packs of Main Cabin Select seats that sold out in a flash).”

Even though you can name the aircraft, I am going to guess there might be some restrictions. I am guessing that “I Love United Airlines” wouldn’t fly, but my choice of “ Express” would be accepted. Even though you get a charter flight with 144 of your closest friends, you might not be able to fly on the plane with your name on it for the special flight.

if you are a person of means who is planning to get this special gift and looking to bring a fun blogger with you to document your adventure… I am your man.

Interesting but a quick exchange rate question. Is a space $60K more or less than an earth $60K 😉

Took me a while where you were getting that 🙂

But now fixed.
