10 Brilliant Ways to Make The Most Of In-Flight Wi-Fi (…and none of them involve your work e-mail)

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

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

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.
