Virgin America Trouble?

The only time I flew Virgin America was from San Francisco to New York earlier this year. I flew first class; the service was terrific, the seats were far more comfortable than most domestic first class seats, the food was great -- but the back of the plane was half empty.

Those shaky mid-week load factors have always been the big question about this airline, which started flying last August.

I'm rooting for Virgin America. But I don't like what I'm hearing: Unspecified capacity cuts of 10 percent, for one.

And now this, in the usually reliable Guardian newspaper in Britain.
