Delta Airlines is kicking off in-flight WiFi tomorrow. Passengers taking popular commuter flights servicing the northeast part of America will be able to join the mile-high WiFi club for free. According to The Washington Post:
"Delta Air Lines plans to begin offering wireless Internet service tomorrow on board half of its shuttle flights between Washington's Reagan National, New York's LaGuardia and Boston's Logan airports. The service will be offered for free on local shuttle flights through the end of the year. Next year, it will be $9.95 on flights of three hours or less and $12.95 on longer flights."
Forget about corporate email. I'm curious to see if the service will work with a PlayStation Portable or a Nintendo DS. At the very least, it should allow for some laptop gaming. If anyone out there happens to be taking one of these flights tomorrow, please leave a comment and let me know how the WiFi works.
What would you do with in-flight WiFi? My first airplane-WiFi-gaming act would be to trade Pokemon with my friend Peter (he's Gary to my Ash).
