    It could be interesting, ...
    I was too 'harsh' and I decided to take my note back. I explained my reasons in a PM, and I accept the note that I was reacting pretty strong on this one.

    I wonder if this is the same system as now offered by Virgin Australia? The Virgin offering is a collaboration with the NewspaperDirect company and its PressReader app – which is usually a paid service (US$1 per publication or all-you-can-eat read for US$30/month), but you get access to all the publications for free using the WiFi network in Virgin's airport lounges.

    If so, I hope this is a sign of a real push by NewspaperDirect for this service, because it's a real boon for travellers. Imagine being able to load up your iPad with the latest editions of a dozen favourite newspapers from around the world- especially those thick reading-packed Saturday editions - before you step onto a long flight.
