  • Virgin America Service / Techie in the Air

    I liked the program and the information. However, I don't understand that you chose to show a British Airways plane within the first 30 seconds of the story. British Airways had nothing to do with this story and was never mentioned, so why show their aircraft?
  • Better hope not

    Fourteen hours from LAX to NYC? Six hours on the tarmac with screaming flight attendants? Um, no thanks.
  • RE: Future of? airplane service

    This is exactly what needs to happen on every airline. It was only a matter of time until someone started to innovate.
  • Great for those long flights

    Expecially the 5 hr trips that last for 12.
