Are you one of those people who can’t wait to update your Facebook status when traveling? I personally don’t but I’m sure many people do. Some people I know changes their status every time they fart so I’m sure someone will benefit from this.
According to Mashable, Gogo Inflight Internet and Ford have teamed up to offer free wi-fi access during the month of February but will only allow access to Facebook. If you need to access something else other than Facebook, then you will have to pay a fee starting at $4.95 and depends on the duration of the flight, you may have to pay more.
Since most of the games are outside of Facebook and if that is the reason why you access Facebook, then you may have to pay a fee. But if you want to post an inflight photo and change your status on Facebook – then it’s free.
Major airlines include AirTran Airways, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta, United Airlines, U.S. Airways and Virgin America.
So, remember if you are flying any of these airlines – – – it’s free for the month of February — with the hopes that you will enjoy it so much that the next time you fly, you will pay the fee to access the internet.
We’ll see how this goes.
