Intraday weakness in Virgin America (NASDAQ: VA) Tuesday was tied to speculation about the White House's plans to hold a call to discuss airline competition today, according to Bloomberg. A few other airlines also saw weakness, including Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL), United Airlines (NYSE: UAL), American Airlines (NASDAQ: AAL), and Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV).

A White House administration official had said the aviation-related call was about consumer protection.

In the view of Credit Suisse analyst Julie Yates, the airline call is a "non-event" and will be about fee disclosure/transparency and access for consumers with disabilities.
