Virgin WiFi on All Planes

Virgin America on Wednesday morning said it has become the first airline to offer Wi-Fi on all of its flights. The extension gives those flying to or from Boston, LA, Las Vegas, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington, DC the option of using most non-voice Internet features on any Wi-Fi equipped computer or handheld as soon as electronics are cleared for use on the plane. Virgin had originally started its access on just flights between New York and San Francisco.

Like most other American airlines equipped with wireless, the service is run by Gogo and has similar pricing schemes that vary depending on the device and flight length. Owners of handhelds like iPhones can pay $8 per flight regardless of the duration. Computer users are charged $6 for short nighttime flights, $10 for daytime flights under three hours, and $13 for flights over three hours.
