Virgin America: Airline Geekery


we flew an overnight flight on the fancy new virgin america from SFO to DC. i must say it was an extremely pleasant experience. i usually don't give a fuck about hyped up corporations trying to be hip or geeky but seriously the simple fact that we could plug our laptops in to work and watch stuff made the 5 hour flight go by fast. and they have their interactive entertainment computers running on linux. nice! soon they will have satellite wifi or so they say. too bad oil is going to run out and no one will be able to afford (economically as well as environmentally) to fly...ah the hey days of humanity....

You'd never know you were flying!

I'm not the best flier in the world, but that looks like I could be distracted enough to actually relax mid flight. And Linux! Crikey.

I wish AmTrack would do this on more of their trains. If you're on a short commuter train there's all kinds of stuff like that, but for long distance, there's shit.

That's the coolest plane I've ever seen. It's like a night club in the sky.

I found this video by accident but I recorded the same thing on first Virgin America flight in December. I had to when I saw Linux booting up.
