Virgin seems to be paying homage to AA’s new livery with the recent delivery of their first sharklet equipped aircraft. Sharklets are wing tip devices that enhance the eco-efficiency and payload-range performance of a plane and this one is painted in red, white, and blue. Unlike AA, Virgin America’s includes the stars as well! Of course, it’s just a coincidence. Virgin America submitted their sharklet design to Airbus more than a year ago, well in advance of AA’s updated livery announcement.
