Fly the WiFi skies

Productivity on planes used to be limited to working on a
PowerPoint presentation or document. Slowly, though, today’s frequent flyers
are able to go online while in the air – and Aircell, the top provider of
in-flight internet, has just made it a little easier.Plane

The company has expanded the pricing options for its GoGo
services, which are available on select flights on Delta, United and American –
and all Virgin America and AirTran flights. (Air Canada service will launch
soon as well.)

Passengers lucky enough to be on one of the planes carrying
the service now have the option to purchase passes for either short haul
flights or a 24-hour pass (in case you’re doing a same-day return or will be
making multiple connections).

The short haul pass will cost $5.95 and will cover flights
lasting up to 1.5 hours. The 24-hour pass will run $12.95, but is currently
only available on AirTran and Delta planes.

While distribution of in-flight internet is still limited,
that’s changing. Delta plans to offer the service on over 300 planes by the end
of the year, a move that may force competitors to increase their usage as well.
