Hint: You might be able to charge up that cell phone by plugging it into your laptop. You don’t have to suffer from internet withdrawal while you are on your flight. You can surf the net all you using the airline’s Wi-fi. You might have heard about the new social networking amenities that some airlines are beginning to include on flights. Virgin Airlines is taking social networking in the air by offering an airline chat utility. You can chat with your friends who are sitting in a different area on the plan or you can chat with someone you do not know and would like to know better. I see the potential for some serious inflight flirting with this amenity!
Just like in a bar, you can open a tab for your drinks. This reduces the need to fiddle with your plastic every time you want something to drink or extra snacks. Those of you who do not like surprises when it is time to eat can read the meal menus online. Both the menus for cabin seating and first class are available on the Virgin America site.
