Me, too! United to Offer In-flight Wi-Fi

Filed under: technology,united,Virgin America — Chris @ 6:29 pm

United Airlines has joined Virgin America, American and Delta with today’s announcement that it will begin offering in-flight internet service to customers on  p.s. flights between New York – Kennedy,  SFO and LAX starting in the second half of this year. Like the other carriers, United will use Aircell’s Gogo in-flight internet service that allows passengers with Wi-Fi enabled devices to surf the net, check email and IM over a high-speed connection. United says it will charge a flat fee of $12.95 for the service.  (NOTE: While airlines are making a big kafuffle about in-flight Wi-Fi, the fact remains that it’s currently on very few planes. Virgin has it on one, Delta and American have got it on about 10 each.)
