If you’re travelling with Virgin Australia in the near future and you find yourself in business class, you’ll more than likely be offered a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to consume media content on during the flight. The devices will also be available on select flight that have a duration exceeding 3 hours (think Melbourne -> Perth) for economy class travellers as well — for an extra cost, of course. That pricing hasn’t been announced just yet, but Virgin is assuring everyone pricing will be cleared up before full-on launch.

Each tablet will have a range of content already loaded onto it, and Virgin are working on installing Lufthansa BoardConnect wireless streaming to certain planes so that even more content can be consumed over Wi-Fi.

Virgin will have the tablets available for rent on their Airbus 330s and Boeing 737-600s within in the next 12-18 months. It looks like flying just far more appetising on Virgin.

Not sure about the 737-600, sure you don’t mean 737-800?
Virgin only operates 737-700 and 737-800 jets.

I wonder if there will be WiFi access to any of the apps and content, in flight, for pax who already have an Android tablet?
