Virgin America Airlines rolled out the red carpet for its Philadelphia launch.
June 19, 2012
Along with Virgin America’s first cross-country flight to Philadelphia came a slew of A-list talent that had Philadelphia buzzing all evening long. Virgin Group Founder Sir Richard Branson hosted a red-carpet event on April 4 to celebrate the first flight by the hightech domestic airline Virgin America to the Philadelphia International Airport. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia cast member Glenn Howerton hosted a tailgate at the site of the airplane’s touchdown before guests headed to the launch party at the Hotel Palomar. And part-time Pennsylvania resident and actress-singer Amber Rose posed with Philadelphia resident and Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard.
