AirTran Airways promises Wi-Fi on every flight

AirTran Airways is announcing today that it plans to have its entire fleet of 136 airplanes equipped with GoGo in-flight Internet service by mid-summer.


As on other airlines that are offering this service, the fee will be $9.95 for flights under three hours and $12.95 for longer flights if you access the service with your laptop.  The fee will be $7.95 if you’re accessing the service on a smartphone.

In-flight Wi-Fi service is a great new amenity, but I’m looking forward to  sifting through the pile of 29,000 other ideas for in-flight amenities that were submitted to the airline during its recent Every Flight campaign.  Because while Wi-Fi is nice, wouldn’t it be fun to have ballroom dancing,  pretzels and mustard, sofas, neck pillows, and Mel Torme on your next flight too?


Free (filtered) Wi-Fi on some Delta flights through Dec 31

Starting today, December 16, Delta Air L ines will be offering Aircell’s “Gogo” in-flight Wi-Fi service on one Boeing 757 flying the airline’s domestic routes and on five MD-88 aircraft flying shuttle routes between New York’s LaGuardia Airport, Boston’s Logan International Airport and Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C.

The cost: $9.95 for flights three hours or less and $12.95 for flights three hours or more.

The service (which will be filtered) is free through December 31st on Gogo-equipped MD-88 shuttle flights through the end of December.

Happy sky high Wi-Fi.
