Woman Harassed via Seat-to-Seat Message Function on Recent Flight

By

Apparently, on Virgin Atlantic flights, you can use the seat screen to message other passengers on the plane. Any passenger you want, whether you know them or not. And that other person, if they accept that you can message them, will see exactly what you wrote to them, no matter how gross or inappropriate it is. 

If this seems like a bad idea to you, join the club. When Jessica Van Meir boarded a Virgin Atlantic flight recently, she didn't expect to be faced with harassment in the form of instant messages from other passengers on the plane. But that's exactly what happened.
