This really comes as no surprise to me. Virgin Air seems to be beyond the cutting edge when it comes to travel and comfort, and really have been paving the way for a new era in air travel. Following in Emirates Airlines, Virgin Atlantic has now added a service that will allow flyers to use their cellular phone during the flight. Right now it’s only limited to 6 passengers at a time, but it’s still a wonderful idea.
The calls are only to be made during “exceptional situations” as the airlines still want flights to be as comfortable as possible, and no one wants someone jabbering in their ear all way from London to New York. Hopefully Virgin America implements this service too, as right now only the Europe arm of the company will have this available.
