US Airliners to Get Wi-Fi Action by Next Year

Good news for Internet addicts who can't stand being disconnected while traveling 35,000 feet in the air. It looks like US airliners will finally offer Wi-Fi on flights starting next year. The bad news is that the provider (AirCell) is gonna ask you to fork over around $10 before you get online. There might be discounted options for T-Mobile, iPass and Boingo users, but there's no free ride here, folks.
