The time has come, internet mavens... to comment on this post from 35,000 feet up, of course. After launching to a select handful
of lucky souls last week, Virgin America has gone live with its Aircell
-engineered Gogo internet service on select flights. As of now, an undisclosed amount of VA flights will offer guests unlimited use (with certain restrictions around VoIP, we hear) while in the air for $12.95 on flights longer than three hours and $9.95 for flights under three hours. The airline's entire fleet should be WiFi-ready by Q1 2009, but for now, why not kill some time tracking planes
with live internet access? Fun, right?
