Google Footing the Bill for Virgin America Wi-Fi During the HolidaysS

How's this for a nice gift from Google? They're paying for Virgin America to make the Wi-Fi on all its flights free from November 10th to January 15th.

The service, normally $13 per flight, will now be open to all. It's good news for Virgin travelers, and it will make booking flights to CES a bit easier, decision wise. Whether or not the equipment on Virgin's planes can handle everybody hopping online at once, however, remains to be seen. [Google Blog via TechCrunch]
