 We were excited to check out all of the cool features including the power outlets, mood lighting and the in flight chat. Mid flight they had to re-boot the system because they were having some issues with the satellite.

When they did we found out a nice little surprise. It seems that their in-flight entertainment system, "Red," is run by Linux. Thought that was a cool FF (Fun Fact) that everyone might enjoy.
