Virgin taking air travel to a higher altitude

Not physically, metaphorically… The kind of flights that are expected in the 21st Century are finally here, well at least in America. Virgin America, the new Airline by Richard Branson’s Virgin group, has an unrivalled in-flight entertainment system. Aesthetics, personal screens (commonplace),  a QWERTY controller (not so common), Linux based systems running Google Maps , chat, etc., Ethernet ports for every seat, and in cabin Wi-Fi! Ironically (and sadly) the services are not available in UK considering that Virgin is British company.

Virgin America: Like a Multimillion-Dollar IPod. That Flies.
