Virgin Airlines stock gains as airlines focus on ‘noise-free’ flight path

Virgin airlines stock climbed 1.4% to $39.86 after reports of a potential shutdown at San Francisco International Airport on Monday.

The shares have been on a tear since Virgin’s CEO resigned earlier this month over the alleged bullying of a female flight attendant.

The airline was already under scrutiny after a report last month that an internal memo showed that female flight attendants had been threatened with sexual violence if they did not agree to participate in a series of training sessions.

Virgin says that it has no intention of shutting down the airport, which has a capacity of about 11,000 passengers.

The stock jumped after the company confirmed that it would not be cancelling any flights.
