O’Brien should work on a Bay area two-fer
News is that the city manager was recently in San Jose for meetings with the San Jose Sharks NHL team about relocating their AHL franchise to Worcester. Worcester could realistically get a two-for-one deal. In addition to the business of hockey, Worcester has another vested interest in the Bay area: The corporate headquarters for Virgin America Airlines, the U.S.-based, startup, discount airline of Virgin mogul Richard Branson will be based in the Bay area. The Virgin America Airlines business model will be based on and compete directly with Southwest and Jet Blue. It will have the money, management and expertise in place to compete. All it will need will be airports. As Southwest has Providence and Manchester covered and Jet Blue has Boston, why not pitch Worcester as a New England hub for both the hockey team and an airport ?
