jasonwhitely Ebola Day 18. Outside the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland where doctors are caring for Nina Pham, 26. They expressed confidence publicly today that the Dallas nurse would survive the deadly disease though they would not speculate when she might be discharged. 3d

jasonwhitely Sit down with Sir Richard Branson, founder of The Virgin Group, after Virgin America moved from DFW Airport to Dallas Love Field. Branson said he's eager to take on Southwest Airlines at its home airport. He also shared stories of getting drunk with Southwest co-founder Herb Kelleher, made a prediction about Virgin Galactic, and revealed the one thing he still hopes to do in life.

Normal Jason Whitely
jasonwhitely Fortunate to have flown to a lot of places around the world but this flight is a first for me - DFW-DAL. I was on board the ceremonial repositioning of the Virgin America flight today when the SFO-based airline moved its Texas operations from DFW to Love Field. VX now flies LAX, SFO, DCA and LGA on Oct. 28 from two gates in Dallas. 7d

jasonwhitely Nina Pham, 26, is the second Ebola patient in Dallas. Her family shared this image of her and confirmed to WFAA that she is being treated at Texas Health Presbyterian. Pham, a nurse, was somehow infected with the deadly virus while helping treat the first patient - Thomas Eric Duncan. Her dog, pictured with her, remains locked inside her apartment in the M Streets. It is being cared for by Dallas Animal Services. 1w

jasonwhitely Country singer Kacey Musgraves (@spaceykacey) performed on board a Virgin America flight this morning. Sir Richard Branson, founder of The Virgin Group, stands beside her as the airline moved its operations from DFW Airport to Dallas Love Field after the Wright Amendment restrictions. Musgraves, from Mineola - about 90-minutes east of Dallas, performed three songs including her hit "Follow Your Heart." She said this was her first time to do a concert at 35,000 feet. 1w

jasonwhitely Virgin America has arrived at Dallas Love Field. The SFO based airline moved from DFW to DAL today after the Wright Amendment expired. It's competing against Southwest Airlines on direct flights to LAX, SFO and DCA. Flights to New York's LGA begin later this month. 1w

jasonwhitely Ace photojournalist @chancehorner captured this shot outside the Dallas hospital where doctors are treating the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States. Chief Photog Mark Muller, John McCaa and me during the 6:00 p.m. coverage tonight. The hospital is safe. I even had lunch inside today. 3w

jasonwhitely The Emirates #A380 Cabin Crew has an iconic look. The airline replaced its 777 with the double decker A380 today on the Dubai to Dallas / Fort Worth route. The jet flies the 8,000 mile trip in about 15-hours. Emirates will be able to double passenger capacity with this 489-seat super jumbo jet. Since it began flying to DFW two and a half years ago, Emirates has carried 460,000 passengers here. 3w

jasonwhitely DFW Airport had to make $4-million in improvements to Terminal D just so the #A380 could start flying here. It reinforced concrete at the gate, added two new jet bridges to the one already at Gate D 15 and put 250 additional seats in the waiting area to accommodate all the extra passengers. 3w

jasonwhitely The first @Qantas #A380 parked at Gate D15 at @dfwairport. It landed a little after 1:00 p.m. today and makes the return trip to Sydney tonight at 10:00 p.m. It's the longest distance flight in the world at more than 8,500 miles and 15.5 hours. I lost my ŌlloClip in Argentina and had to rely on the panoramic function of my now-antique iPhone5 but it captured this cool image. 3w

jasonwhitely Qantas began the first A380 service to @dfwairport this afternoon. The 15-hour flight between Sydney and DFW is the longest distance flight in the world. Qantas is replacing its 747-400ER with the A380 on the six-day a week service to North Texas. Emirates Airlines will begin flying an #A380 on its Dubai to DFW service beginning on Wednesday. The Qantas flight has a 1:45 p.m. scheduled arrival on every day except Tuesday if you want to see it. 3w

jasonwhitely I'm southbound!
Nah, I wish. It's a dummy ticket provided by @Qantas and @dfwairport to be escorted beyond security to see the first #A380 starting regular service to North Texas. The Qantas flight is the longest distance flight in the world at more than 8,500 miles. It's also a 15-hour flight. Emirates begins flying its A380 here from Dubai on Wednesday. The Airbus 380 is a double decker super jumbo jet and can carry more passengers with less fuel than other wide-body aircraft.

jasonwhitely Forgot about this selfie at Dallas Love Field when Southwest Airlines unveiled its new livery recently. Qantas begins flying its massive A380 to DFW Airport next Monday. Wonder if I can get the same shot on one of the four engines of that beast? 4w
