7 Very Virgin America Reasons to Love SFO's New Terminal 2

WIRED magazine once called Virgin America planes "multi-million dollar iPods that fly" -- a comparison that's even more appropriate now that the hometown airline of Apple-lovin' San Francisco has moved into SFO's Terminal 2. Virgin America will occupy seven gates at T2 (which has its opening ceremony this weekend) and collaborated closely with Gensler and Turner Construction on the design and concept from the early stages. Virgin America's always been a cut above the rest in tech-friendliness, sustainable practices (their planes are 25% more fuel efficient than others in the sky) and food services, experiences they have extended from plane to terminal in the new T2. Here are 7 Very Virgin America Reasons to Love SFO's Terminal 2.
