Passengers on Virgin America flights between Nov. 10 and Jan. 15 will get free Gogo Inflight Internet access, courtesy of Google, the airline announced today.
Airlines are rolling out Wi-Fi as quickly as they can, but passengers have proved fairly resistant to the fees. Maybe this holiday special will break the ice. Or maybe it will overload the service and slow it to a crawl — especially when you consider that Virgin America has electrical outlets at every seat, so nobody will run out of battery power.
Anyway, I’d use it. I’ve never found any broadband that was too free for me.
