Some U.S. carriers oppose Virgin America's application. Several U.S. airlines believe start-up Virgin America should not be allowed to operate domestic flights in the U.S. because it is owned and funded by foreign investors. A spokesman for Virgin America says its application to operate U.S. flights is within the law. The airline submitted its application to the Department of Transportation in December. Sep 19, 2006

Virgin Atlantic Airways banned Apple and Dell laptop computer batteries from international flights following last month's recall of 1.8 million batteries by Dell as possible fire hazards. Virgin passengers must remove the batteries from the computer, wrap them and place them in carry-on bags, reported BBC. Passengers can use the computers sans batteries in flight if seats are equipped with electrical sockets and can transport two of the batteries in a carry-on bag. Korean Air and Qantas also have placed restrictions on laptop batteries in response to the recall. Sep 19, 2006
