Southwest is one of the last major carriers to finally commit to in-flight Wi-Fi, but at least they're doing it right. According to a recent post on the Southwest blog, the airline is going to begin outfitting its planes with Row 44 Wi-Fi starting this spring, and will have the entire fleet connected by 2012.
Paying for Wi-Fi stings, even at 30,000 feet in the air. Luckily, we may not be paying for much longer.
Southwest this week began testing their own in-flight wi-fi service, based on a satellite connection from Row 44. It's on one plane now with more coming soon, and right now, it's free.
