To help set apart its in-flight experience from the competition, Virgin America is launching a campaign featuring cultural influencers who largely hail not from Hollywood but from Silicon Valley.

Among the stars of the new push — which has been dubbed Virgin America ‘Originals’ — are Tim Westergren, the cofounder of Pandora; Ryan Schreiber, Founder of Pitchfork; Alexis Maybank and Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, Co-Founders of Gilt Group; Xeni Jardin, co-Editor of BoingBoing.net; and Ji Lee, Independent Artist and Creative Strategist of Facebook.
