Wifi is now available on every Virgin Atlantic plane to every destination – yep, even over the Atlantic. Here are some of our suggestions to help you pass the time at 35,000 feet:

1. BECOME BILINGUAL

… Just realised you land in two hours and your Chinese for “one beer please” isn’t so good? We got you. There are plenty of apps to get you started – try DuoLingo for back to basic essentials.

2. SHAMELESS SELFIE

Make sure all of your friends see how good you look before the jetlag hits! We hear the light gets really good around Greenland… ?

3. SWIPE RIGHT

Where better to potentially meet the love of your life than at 35,000ft? Set radius to 1 mile and get swiping with seat 6A.

4. ORDER GROCERIES

We know, we know… but bear with us – think how happy you’ll feel when you arrive home to perfectly timed bread, milk and a proper fry up!

5. LIVE TWEET

Become the next viral tweet sensation and tell-all on that noisy couple next to you who just won’t stop arguing about some girl named Sandra and an ill-advised mention of her beloved cat Twiggles. Go on, we won’t judge.

6. HUMBLE BRAG

7. BAG TICKETS

Don’t miss out on those impossible-to-get gig tickets just because you happen to be somewhere over the Atlantic. Hello Wembley!

8. KEEP THE SPARK ALIVE

9. BE PRODUCTIVE

Wedding planning? Baby shower coming up? Got an over-elaborate hamster birthday celebration expected by your five year old? Use this time wisely and you’ll feel very smug. Remember: Pinterest is your friend.

10. PLAN YOUR NEXT TRIP
