Virgin America introduces business-focused in-flight social network

If you are one of the precious few who enjoy socializing with fellow passengers on an airplane, take note: Virgin America has announced an in-flight social network to help business travelers connect. The airline’s “network” is basically a deployment of geolocating business connection app Here on Biz for iPhone (s AAPL). Passengers will be encouraged to log in at the gate or in the air via Gogo Inflight Internet to see nearby professionals’ details from LinkedIn (s LNKD), Facebook (S FB) and Twitter (s TWTR). Passengers will be able to access the app via Gogo for free until July.
