Virgin America Gets Friendly With San Francisco Giants Fans

Virgin America and the World Champion San Francisco Giants are teaming up for Saturday's game against the loathsome Philadelphia Phillies (full disclosure: the author is a huge Giants fan). All fans attending the game will receive a 2 for 1 flight voucher.

We're sure Brian Wilson's beard approves of this. Speaking of beards, during the game @Virginamerica will be hosing a #FlyTheBeard Twitter Scavenger Hunt where the winner can land a chance to win a free flight.

Virgin also renewed and expanded a multi-year multi-million dollar partnership with the Giants through 2015, keeping in tune with their proclamation that they're the "Official Airline of the San Francisco Giants since 2008."

This is bolstered by Virgin's offering a Giants in-flight channel and, in 2012, most Giants game broadcasts will offered fleet-wide via the carrier’s in-flight satellite television.
