Wifi Coming to Domestic Flights
The airlines may not be very good at getting flights off the ground in time or making sure your luggage reaches your destination when you do, however, at least one carrier has announced it would begin allowing people to connect to the Internet during some flights.
American Airlines announced a 3-month test of its new in-flight wireless service. The test will be conducted on three "long haul" flights, although the service -- like every other service -- will cost $13.
The company hosting the access, Aircell, is also working with Delta.
Fortunately for weary travelers, both airlines have decided to restrict VoIP calls, which means you won't have to listen to your neighbor babbling on with their friends while you remain trapped in your seat.
