Virgin inflightDomestic air carriers are ramping up their in-flight entertainment systems, according to the mildly obsessed  Jaunted.com. Seat-back LCD screens and complete in-flight entertainment and connectivity systems are becoming more widespread.

The theory is that passengers will be less cranky if they’re not as bored, in addition to which these systems offer new opportunities for incremental revenue.

The article is well worth checking out before booking your next flight. It gives a fairly detailed breakdown of what is available on each airline (Virgin’s is pictured),  and concludes with an informative comparison chart.
