AirCell set to hook up Virgin America with in-flight broadband

Fresh from inking a deal with American Airlines, relative newcomer AirCell is now set to bring its in-flight internet knowhow to Virgin America, with the pair officially announcing the partnership today. In addition to letting passengers use their own personal WiFi-equipped devices on flights, the service will also be used to provide broadband internet to Virgin's RED in-flight entertainment system, which we recently got to check out first hand. Just don't expect to be able to do that right away, with the service only "anticipated" to roll out across Virgin's entire fleet "sometime in 2008."
