I recently (October) flew into Vegas with Virgin Atlantic.
I am a frequent flyer with them, and this time I was disappointed to find that their channel on the in-flight entertainment which allows you to follow
the route of the flight was 'not working'.
I asked a member of the cabin crew if they could fix it and switch it on, but they never did.
It occurred to me that there might be a reason for this not being switched on, could it be that certain people do not want it to be known when we are
flying close to restricted airspace perhaps?
I asked other people I met in Vegas and at the airport when I left. Many, including people on different flights to me, also noticed that this
function was switched off on their inbound flight.
I was interested to see if the facility was working on my return flight-on a different aircraft.
Sure enough, again it was out of order, although it has always worked on every other Virgin flight I have ever taken.
Is this just an amazing coincidence?
