Delta Starts Inflight Wi-Fi

The next time I fly, I’ll likely look Delta’s way. Why? Because the company announced today that Delta Airlines passengers will have inflight Wi-Fi across the entire fleet starting mid-2009.

Other air carriers have discussed having in-flight wireless net access including American, Virgin, and JetBlue; however Delta is the first to actually come out with roll-out plans.

According to news.com:

The wireless service, which will allow people to connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi-enabled laptops, PDAs, or smartphones, will cost $9.95 on flights of three hours or less, and $12.95 on flights of more than three hours. The airline is partnering with Aircell, which also supplies in-flight Wi-Fi technology to other carriers, such as American Airlines and Virgin America.

The ability to be online when I fly would be amazing. I hope Delta is successful with their roll-out.
