I am very glad to see in-flight WiFi becoming common on flights across the country and around the world. This lets you surf the web, check email, and do other things on your computer that need an internet connection while you are in the air.
Most domestic airlines now offer GoGo in-flight WiFi and Alaska Airlines has announced that it is adding the service to six of its aircraft. The internet access has been added to six of the airlines Boeing 737-800 aircraft and by the end of 2010, all aircraft in its fleet will have access.
The access will provide full internet access on any WiFi capable device and will be offered free on all flights through July 31st. All of the 737-800 aircraft in the fleet will be outfitted by the end of the summer. After July 31st, the service will cost $4.95 per flight depending on the flight length and the device being used.
