As it did last year, Google is underwriting the cost of Wi-Fi for some holiday travelers. Last year, the in-flight Wi-Fi was available only on Virgin America flights. This year, they’ve added Delta and AirTran. Dates are from November 20, 2010 to January 2, 2011.
From Google site FreeholidayWiFi.com:
This holiday season, Google Chrome has teamed up with AirTran Airways, Delta, and Virgin America to offer free Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi on every domestic flight from November 20, 2010 through January 2, 2011. These participating airlines have outfitted their entire domestic fleet with Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi, and we expect more connected passengers this holiday season than ever before!
Just bring a Wi-Fi enabled laptop or mobile device and stay connected to family and friends while you travel.
This was just announced today – hopefully before the holiday travel season really takes off they’ll add other carriers.
