Virgin America founder Sir Richard Branson talks to reporters aboard a Virgin Airlines flight on April 6, 2011. Virgin introduced a new terminal at San Francisco International Airport with a media extravaganza befitting the young airline, known for its publicity stunts. The unveiling included an in-flight look at Virgin Galactic's WhiteKnightTwo and its attached SpaceShipTwo rocket-powered plane, appearances by astronaut Buzz Aldrin, California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsome, model-actress Rachel Hunter and billionaire Branson, who predicted his airline will compete easily with the stalwarts of the industry.
