As the regional jets used by Delta’s wholly owned Comair are fitted with wifi capability, some passengers are very excited while others are disappointed that it costs them $9.95 a flight. There are other options and I suppose if you really need to get some work done or simply want to keep up with your friends and that football score, then you’ll pay the price. At least the option is there and it’s no more than on Delta.When ever you see the wifi sign, simply wait until the aircraft is above 10,000ft and the flight attendants let you know that it’s safe to use electronic devices. Your internet ready device will automatically show Gogoinflight as a signal option.
The pricing ranges from $4.95 for a flight that is only up to 1.5 hours, $9.95 for flights from 1.5 hours-3.0 hours and $12.95 for a flight over 3 hours. Other options include 24 hours for $12.95 and two monthly passes. $39.95 as a one time deal and then save $5 for a cost of $34.95 if you make it automatically renewable.
What’s so great about this anyway? Can’t a person just wait until they get to their destination? Let’s discuss it…
I remember one particular flight where we were going to go to Las Vegas but didn’t get on because there weren’t any more seats left for us. I saw a flight to San Francisco across the hall and they had seats. The only possible problem is that we had never been there and the flight didn’t get in until after 10pm. So, from the airplane, I was able to check out the area and find a hotel!
What if you have a bid deal in the works and have no idea what’s going on? The company has some questions that they want answered immediately and you’re at least two hours from the office! Hop online and make the deal happen all while flying at 35,000!
I guess that you say that I’m all for it. Cellphones on the other hand? No thank you! I don’t mind typing but having to verbally hear your conversation or 76 peoples conversations….
