Keeping Red running and cutting hungry Gogo users

Virgin America recently launched new functionality for its Panasonic/CoKinetic in-flight entertainment (IFE) system Red. IFE engineer “James” explains some of the new features in the video below. He also discusses “significant” improvements to the carrier’s satellite television service and reveals a couple of other interesting things, including the carrier’s practice of cutting Aircell Gogo in-flight Internet “users that are too hungry”. Yeah, that means you, oh secret Skypers! :0)

This is all well and good, of course, but we know that Virgin America is eyeing a far more advanced IFE and connectivity solution for its next generation system. But isn’t everybody these days?
