    Sounds like a great idea. On-demand systems are so much better too.

    But what happens when someone reclines? :mrgreen:

    I'd forgotten all about the Foxtel thing (although they seem to have dropped 10000 feet in altitude - Foxtel was for 40,000 feet, the latest gadget for 30,000 feet).

    I am surprised they even had to ask the people that flew to Perth if they thought it was a good idea.

    Re: Jetstar not impressed by Virgin Blue announcement


    Umm... Just looks like JQ trying to spoiler a perfectly valid statement/advert

    If the release states as quoted, "Virgin Blue today announced the airline’s Perth flights would be its first in Australia to offer Oscar winning movie entertainment via personal ‘video on demand’ players from next month. "

    I see nothing at all misleading; they are not trying to claim to be the 1st carrier, just that it is *their* first flights to offer it
