Virgin America joins other gadget-friendly airlines

updated 10:45 am EST, Mon January 22, 2007

Gadget-friendly Virgin Am.

While it has yet to start commercial operations (due to national ownership rules), Virgin America has announced plans to make seats on its airline equipped for digital gadgets and entertainment. Unlike United Airlines, who are only offering such luxuries to first-class passengers, every seat on a Virgin America jet will have WiFi, USB and Ethernet ports, as well as a 110V power outlet for laptops and similar devices. Passengers will even have access to touchscreens, which can be used to shop, order food, view movies and satellite TV, listen to MP3s and radio, or play simple games. There should also be in-plane messaging capabilities, including chat, SMS and e-mail. [Via Pocket-lint]
