    In a coup for local airline boosters and passengers, upstart carrier Virgin America will announce Monday that it will offer daily service to Los Angeles from Mineta San Jose International Airport, starting May 1.
    The fast-growing domestic carrier, which has earned a reputation for low fares and innovative amenities such as in-flight Wi-Fi service, plans to offer four daily non-stop flights to Los Angeles while hoping "to get a better feel for the San Jose market," CEO David Cush said in an interview.
    ...
    The new flights to Los Angeles will connect with Virgin America service to other cities in the United States and Mexico. Since high-priced fuel makes long-haul flights proportionately more expensive than short hops from San Jose to Southern California, Cush said, "we saw this as a low-risk way of putting our toe in the water."
    That may eventually lead "to bigger things that I know the city of San Jose wants," Cush said, but "it will be a year or so before we look at adding" other flights.
