I have been traveling non-stop for the past couple months. Last week alone I was in San Francisco, Chicago and Boston. Tomorrow morning I will be up at 3am for a flight to New York. Despite all my travel I would not consider myself loyal to any particular airline. I use Orbitz to book all my flights and generally go with the best price regardless of the airline… but that may soon change.
AirTran has outfitted a good number of their planes with Wifi. You can connect to the Internet in flight for $9.95. Not only is it reasonably priced, it’s fast! So fast that I was able to have a video conference at 30,000 feet. I took three flights on WiFi enabled AirTran planes last week and averaged about 2Mbps for downloads. I love that I can be connected with my team back at IZEA while in the air.
This was a great move for AirTran. Not only is it an additional revenue stream, it has converted me to a loyal customer.
