The UK carrier declared Wednesday that it would begin offering VR headsets in a preliminary ability to choose travelers on flights. The preliminary keeps going through the part of the arrangement has a genuinely constrained extension; you should be in top of the line flying from London Heathrow airplane terminal to New York’s JFK.

VR as in-flight stimulation is an interesting thought, yet one that accompanies dangers.
