"Internet connectivity is set to join pretzels and orange juice as one of the options on airlines as flight attendants roll their cart down the aisle."
The pretzels and OJ will be free, but I doubt the Wi-Fi will be for very long. I'd bet it will be free during the testing phase, but the airlines will eventually charge for it. Jet Blue, Virgin Airlines and Southwest are the only airlines planning on testing Wi-Fi on their airplanes, which will start near the end of the year. I don't fly that much any more, and when I do most of my flights are short ones, 2 or 3 hours at the most. Even on the short flights though, it would be nice to have this option. We'll see how they set up the pricing structure, if it is anything like they have done with the inflight phone calls, you can bet I'll be passing on the Wi-Fi! Besides, I can always just watch a movie.
