Alaska Airline’s Wi-Fi One

Testing out in-flight Wi-Fi on Alaska Airline’s Wi-Fi One.   Sign-on was easy, system is fast.  (Seems faster than my connection at the airport; could that be?).

Flight attendants seems excited about being on the test plane, but I’m surprised there was no announcement letting everyone know the service was available – for free.  There are big cards explaining the service in the seatback pockets – but not that many look in those pockets do they?

Already I’m wondering: As in-flight Wi-Fi becomes more common – and we have to pay for it – travelers will have another decision to make:  pay for Wi-Fi in the airport or pay for it on the plane.  Would you do both?
