Wi-Fi is Back on International Flights For Me

What a very pleasant surprise. Wi-Fi connectivity on my Virgin Atlantic flight to Washington D.C. from London on a new Airbus 330. What a joy it was to see the Cabin Connect insert inside the seat side compartment. And, even more of a joy, it's working before we get to the USA territory. Am I stoked.

It has been years since the old Boeing Connexion service was around on Lufthansa and a few other airlines, and while at 15 pounds for unlimited time, and only 40 megs of data. I love the idea of "staying connected" in the air on what will be an 8 hour flight.

So far I can surf the web, get my email and Facebook. I also am connected via Skype for text, but there's no voice connectivity, nor are any of my SIP accounts working.

Now this makes my choice of flights, airlines and aircraft, as well as routes a wee bit more interesting.
