Australia’s missing in-flight link

Virgin Australia’s latest wi-fi initiative may stream content straight into the laptops of travellers but it still doesn’t connect them to the internet.

In-flight internet services look set to take off next year with Air China, Cathay Pacific, United Airlines, and Emirates all planning to help passengers get connected.

But if you think yesterday’s in-flight wi-fi announcement by Virgin Australia means Australians will soon get the same privilege, you’re in for a disappointment.
