What is the status of Virgin's wifi inflight entertainment rollout? Has it progressed beyond just one aircraft yet?

I believe at the moment it is still only live on one aircraft, but they are in process of fitting out the 737 and Embraer fleet with the equipment.  Last I heard there were at least a dozen aircraft equipped to deliver IFE.

I asked this question in 2011, 2 years on still nothing. I was given a tablet once but yet to ever see one again. here is what i got as a reply in 2011.

Hey, ourladyair,

Virgin currently have 10 Boeing Sky Interior Aircraft, with 2 about to enter service. There is about 15 aircraft that have been re-configured with Business Class, new economy class and the new bulkheads. In-Flight Entertainment is still in the works, it is most likely going to be the new red system version 2 when released, but we dont know yet. It will be here soon. The older aircraft still have Live2Air which is now free of charge except movies. Most likely going to be a portable IFE as if it was seatback they would havce it already done on re-fitted/new dilivered aircraft. Lets just wait and see!
