I’ve been flying on Virgin America up and down the California coast quite a bit recently. It’s great because of their in-seat entertainment consoles where you can listen to music and watch live television. There is a glaring absence however: the Internet.

If airlines and regulators can ever get their acts together and start offering the Internet on flights, the hassle of flying for me will go way down. I truly believe that it will even make me care less about leg room.
