Virgin to offer $77 SFO-Seattle flights

New airline Virgin America will begin service between San Francisco and Seattle in March.

The airline announced today it will offer three daily roundtrip flights from San Francisco International Airport to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport starting Mar. 18.

Tickets went on sale today.

One-way fares start at $77 for main cabin and $177 for first class, the airline said.

The airline will offer connecting flights from Seattle to the New York area, Washington D.C., Las Vegas and San Diego.

All fares are one-way on Virgin America planes. A main cabin seat, the most affordable fare, requires a 21-day advance purchase. First class tickets need seven day's notice.

Changes or cancellations of flights cost $40, the airline says.

Virgin America offers mood lighting, a selection of $3,000 MP3 music tracks and live television on its planes, all part of what airline officials call “the most advanced -in-flight entertainment system in the skies.”

The airline aims to be one of the first in the U.S. to offer air-to-ground broadband Internet service for every seat. The airline says it plans to provide the service sometime next year.
