Virgin America Signs Up with AirCell

Like American Airlines before it, low-fare carrier Virgin America is partnering with AirCell to offer broadband Internet service during flights. Virgin America said the service-accessible via Wi-Fi enabled devices like PDAs and laptop computers or through in-flight entertainment systems in Virgin America's seats-would be available fleet-wide sometime in 2008. Earlier this summer, American Airlines announced similar plans for its fleet, stating that testing will be conducted in 2008 on its Boeing 767-200 aircraft, which primarily flies transcontinental routes.
