New Virgin America Plane Boasts Giants Logo, Brian Wilson’s Beard

30 Mar


At the San Francisco Giants media day event this morning Burlingame-based, nightclub-inspired airline Virgin America unveiled the latest member of their fleet of snazzy airliners named “Fly Bye Baby”. And it’s got Brian Wilson’s beard on it! As part of the airline’s multi-year marketing deal with the team, the Airbus A320 boasts a big fat Giants logo (presumably visible from the ground in Chavez Ravine), “SF”-emblazoned jet engines and the closing pitcher’s iconic facial hair.

No word yet on when this thing will go in to service, but we’re hoping it takes off by May — just in time to hop a cheap flight down to LA to for the first series against the Dodgers.

Update: As the folks at Virgin America PR noted in a later press release, the bearded Airbus goes in to service next week on April 2nd. Fans riding on the plane can enter some sort of Twitter promotion [PDF warning] to win club level seats and free flights.
