Virgin America Signature Card pros and cons

I was thinking of applying for Virgin America Signature Card issued by Barclays.  BT and points seem good but heard lots of negatives about Barclays.  Anyone apply for this card?  If so, please share your results and thoughts.  Thanks

I have a Bank Atlantic Business card backed by Barclays and it started with a huge CL and they have never chased my balance as I have paid it down with the 0%, overall they have been a great bank to me.

I thought Virgin Amex card is issued by BOA/FIA not Barclay's. I understand Barclay's is very picky card issuer.

Virgin America ( U.S. flights) is issued by Barclays.
