Now that I knew what to expect from Virgin America (good things), I was looking forward to another great flight as we made our way to SFO that morning. The taxi driver dropped us off right outside terminal 2, and from there we proceeded to the Virgin America check in counter without having to wait in line at all.
Things weren’t so busy on this Sunday morning, and we were checked in and through security within a matter of minutes.
San Francisco, CA (SFO) – San Diego, CA (SAN)
Sunday August 3 2014
Aircraft: Airbus A319
Seat: 2A (first)
Boarding had already started by the time we arrived at the gate (we were busy browsing the shops), and we ended up being one of the last 1/3 of the passengers onboard.
Unlike our outbound flight two days ago, we had seats in the second row of first class – and I immediately noticed how much more legroom this row had compared to the bulkhead row. There was plenty of room to stretch out, and I can easily say that I preferred sitting here instead of at the bulkhead.
As we were getting situated, the flight attendants began thier safety demonstration. The economy class flight attendant made this highly entertaining by lip synching and performing the high-energy Virgin America dance-based demonstration video live – running up and down the aisle and performing the dance superbly. Suffice to say, he received a healthy round of applause after that performance!
After a fun-filled weekend in San Francisco, I was pretty tired this morning. Therefore, after taking a handful of pics of our departure from runway 28L, I immediately shut the window shade, put the seat in the “relax” position, and then proceeded to do just that for the remainder of the short one hour and fifteen minute flight down to San Diego. I did try working on this trip report for a bit, but that didn’t last long…I was really tired!
The arrival into San Diego was completely uneventful other than the fact that it was cloudy and very humid once we arrived. It had obviously been raining earlier, which is pretty rare for mid-summer in southern California. No matter – it was good to be home.
