Virgin America is offering its flyers an opportunity to 'test-fly' Google Chromebook with fee Wi-Fi. Virgin America flyers will get a chance to check out a Chromebook at their departure airport gate and take the new notebook computer out for a spin onboard select Virgin America flights. The offer will run from July 1 to September 30, 2011.
In addition, flyers who check out a Chromebook will receive a free WiFi session onboard Virgin America via the Gogo network. Virgin America was the first airline to offer fleetwide WiFi, so Chromebook users on all Virgin America flights can open their browser and surf the web for free at 35,000 feet.
In addition, Google and Virgin America are jointly developing a “Virgin America Traveler” Chrome app which will be made available in July at the Chrome Web Store. The free app will help travelers gear up and get inspired for upcoming trips by allowing users to select their packing essentials on the fly and even brainstorm their next trip using UrbanDaddy’s insider recommendations on where to go, what to see and what to do in select Virgin America cities
