As much fun as it would be to make lame jokes about the name Virgin and how phallic a big steel tube flying through the sky is, we'll just leave it at saying Virgin America's just been tentatively approved by the US Department of Transportation.
Virgin, for the unfamiliar, has state-of-the-art planes that play Doom and have loads of music and video streaming appliances in every seat. It's essentially the ultimate airline for nerds who have to travel (us).
Their PR folks say they have a few more stages to get through, but if everything goes correctly they should be up in the air by summer.
