Virgin America Has a 'Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish' Aircraft

Apple fanboys, and not only them, are very familiar with Steve Jobs’ quote “Stay hungry, stay foolish.” What they may not be familiar with is the fact that airline company Virgin America has an Airbus A320 named after the popular quote. The “Stay hungry, stay foolish” aircraft first took to the skies late last year.

One question comes to mind: how did the plane get to be named after the co-founder of Apple? It seems that Virgin America, the first airline company to offer fleet-wide WiFi to its passenger, held an internal plane naming competition. Virgin America spokersperson Abby Lunardini explained that an employee submitted the name as a tribute to Steve Jobs.


“The idea behind Virgin America was to reinvent the travel experience by thinking differently about design and service--we are known for the tech-forward amenities we offer onboard,” explained Abby Lunardini in an interview for CNET.

Virgin America’s aircrafts are a treat for any tech-head. As mentioned above, Virgin America is the first airline company (must be mentioned here that the company is based in Silicon Valley) to offer fleet-wide WiFi to its passengers. On top of that, the aircrafts have a power outlet at every seat, so you can charge your device as you’re browsing the web. And on top of that, the airplanes have touch-screen entertainment.

To sum it up, you could fly in an airplane called “Stay hungry, stay foolish”, charge your iPhone, and surf the web as you fly to your destination since Virgin America offers fleet-wide WiFi.

Born on February 24th, 1995, Apple co-founder, chairman and CEO Steve Jobs died at home on October 5th, 2011, surrounded by his family. He was a visionary, an inventor, a highly successful entrepreneur who will be dearly missed. Tim Cook, former COO and current CEO of Apple, said that the company lost a visionary and a creative genius when news broke that Steve Jobs died.
