Virgin America in partnership with Lufthansa Systems plans to roll out a new IFE system call BoardConnect into 2012.
BoardConnect will feature enhanced generation of Red, Virgin America's inflight system. Seats will feature new HD monitors, a QWRTY equipped keyboard remote, and improved WiFi connectivity with scalable bandwidth.
One aircraft N814VA, now named the #nerdbird, will commence back-end testing of the new platform this month.
