Now believe it or not, Virgin America isn't the first airline to pioneer facial hair on airplanes. Last year, Qantas showed their support for Movember by painting a proper mustache on a Boeing 737. So a beard has been done, a mustache has been done...what about a goatee? If we had to pick a plane to sport a little chin rug, it'd definitely be another B737this time the Apolo Ohno plane from Alaska Airlines. Come to think of it, why doesn't it have a goatee already?!

One more thing. If you're a hardcore SF Giants fan, you'll want to know all the rest of the fun stuff Virgin America has planned for you and your team this season. From the release:
The new Giants channel [on the seatback Red TV system] launching onboard flights in April, will also house behind-the-scenes fan content, including highlights from 2012 Spring Training and 2010 season footage. In addition, Giants fans can grab some ballpark inspired menu pairings while watching a Giants game at 35,000 feet, via the airline’s unique on-demand menu. The Giants-inspired menu will roll out fleetwide on Virgin America in April, including: the “Double-Play Snack” (Emerald Nuts and beer) and the “Triple Play Meal” (Virgin America’s mile-high club sandwich with turkey breast, crisp lettuce and roma tomatoes piled high on sliced sourdough with feta cheese spread , alongside Emerald Nuts and a beer).
