Virgin Airlines Offers 'Entourage' Flights


Get ready to party like Hollywood royalty.

Virgin America Airlines announced this week that they are rebranding the airline's flight from New York's JFK Airport to Las Vegas as "Entourage Air" throughout September, Variety reports. So, if you want to party like you're a member of "Entourage" than you had better get yourself to New York.

HBO is going all out in promoting their flagship show after a much too long hiatus and is really setting a new standard in new and innovative product placement.

The airline will wrap the plane with "Entourage" signage and will screen the season premiere of the show beginning Sept. 4, when the airline launches its direct route.

But wait there's more . . .

For the inaugural flight September 4th, there will be a kickoff party at JFK with the "Entourage" cast, as well as Virgin founder and chairman, and all around great guy Richard Branson, who launched Virgin America last year. You also get to party at the Palms Casino Resort's Playboy Club when you land in Las Vegas.

The flight will also include many "Entourage" themed amenities as well as the introduction of "Entourage Class" to first class flyers, which includes noise-canceling headphones, champagne, Godiva Truffles, Kiehl's Travel Set, Altoids and "Entourage Air" specially branded blankets and eye masks. All that plus you get to hang out with guys from Queens. Is it just me or does it kinda sound like a "Soul Plane" experience, only much cooler? I wonder what the female flight attendants are going to wear?

While there is no word on how many flights there will be, it'll cost you to party like the Hollywood elite. A quick check of the Virgin America website revealed that the September 4th flight (and Party) is sold out but other days "Entourage Air" is still available for anywhere between $700 to over $1,000 one-way. Ouch!

The fifth season of "Entourage," premieres on Sunday, Sept. 7 at 10pm. At the same time, additional HBO programming becomes available on all Virgin America planes as part of a licensing deal that runs through October 2009 through their new Red touch-screen in-flight entertainment system.

I'm thinking about going to JFK just for this flight (one way of course), how about you?

Can't get enough "Entourage"? Check out these fifth season teasers provided by Daily Motion and HBO Clips. Check back to see my weekly episode reviews as well as other "Entourage" related news. Enjoy!
