I just noticed the following comments by Brett Godfrey in a news article that was primarily about the new Virgin Blue Lounges:
Sounds like a cool system.theaustralian.news.com.au said:Mr Godfrey said plans to fly to the US were still in train, and Virgin had a team of 10 working on them. He hoped to brief the airline's new board about the plan by September or October. He said it was still considering aircraft capable of flying the route. Availability and the ability to fly the mission were issues.
The first Virgin plane to boast the live cable service, LiveTV, will be converted in the US in July. Subsequent conversions will be done in New Zealand.
Passengers will be able to pay to receive Foxtel channels, including news and business reports, broadcast via satellite.
Mr Godfrey said price had not been decided but it would be "considerably less" than the $12 charged for portable digital entertainment systems.
