Virgin America: “Our first ever second-quarter net profit and year-to-date operating income show that our company is now poised to produce meaningful profitability. As we have reduced our growth from the 30 percent-plus level of the past few years to a more sustainable rate, our network has begun to mature into a profitable one, and our markets continue to show industry-leading RASM growth,” David Cush, President and CEO.
