I have been waiting for the day when I can surf the internet while bored on the plane. It is almost painful to have to shut off my BlackBerry before takeoff.
Nikolaus just sent me an article on CNN reporting that Delta is planning on having WiFi on all of their domestic flights by the middle of 2009. The best part is that it will not be priced in the stratosphere. It will be $9.99 for flights that are 3 hours or less or $12.95 for longer flights.
Delta is not the first carrier to announce their intentions and hopefully will not be the last. I can’t wait until it is commonplace to always be offered internet access on every flight…
So what would you pay to have wireless internet on your flight? I know it would convince me that WiFi is finally worth it on my next BlackBerry.
