WIFI takes flightDamien Moye
If you’re a frequent flyer who’d love to be able to take your laptop aboard a plane and use the internet, WIFI is now being offered by American Airlines, servicing all of its MD-80 aircraft – with implementation of the WIFI service planned for additional fleets in time. They’ve even included an easily accessible – by PC or phone – online widget that’ll inform you if your upcoming flight is WIFI enabled. This tool answers queries that are 24 hours before departure, leaving you unable to determine if a flight booked a month or so out will be internet accessible.
This is certainly a step in the right direction, as we become a wireless world, and we only hope that it points towards all airlines adopting the same forward-thinking business model.
