Virgin America Becomes The Airline For In-Flight Couch Potatoes
If you’re still aggravated from your Thanksgiving air travel, you better have gotten over it because round two begins this week. Hopefully your travel plans allow for the chance to book a trip on Virgin America, because they’re definitely the airline to fly for the holidays if all you want to do is stare at the TV and binge on goodies. Besides totally free WiFi through January 15 and power plugs at your feet, the airline lets you order plenty of snacks straight to your tray table.
Virgin America also has Red—that’s their in-flight entertainment system—and now they are upping the ante on their offerings. If you know your favorite show won’t be stored on the DVR at the grandparent’s house, you’ll be able to catch up on programs like Top Chef in the air. New channels being added including E!, Bravo, CBS, TNT, and CW—just in time for their new reality show.
Besides a television upgrade, the system is also adding a “Best of the Web” section. No need to look up dumb videos on YouTube by yourself, since the airline will do all that tedious Internet research for you. Hopefully that means more current content than Diet Coke and Mentos videos. However, we’ll probably be sticking to the live television, because CBS means there’s a good chance for in-flight football on Sundays.
