Default Free WiFi When You Fly Certain Airlines, Sort Of...

"Uh oh, our Jason Chen is going to be pissed when he sees this news. In-flight Wi-Fi's set to get even slower, now that Gogo is giving away free Facebook access on seven of the major airlines.

The airlines are Virgin America, United and American Airlines, Delta, AirTran, US Airways and Alaska Airlines, and through the month of February they are providing free Facebook access via Gogo. You can always pay for more, with the prices from $4.95 USD to $12.95 USD depending on the length of the flight. According to Gogo, Facebook is their most visited sight thus the tie-in with this promotion. Interesting factoid from Gogo: only 7% to 10% of all passengers on WiFi equipped planes use the WiFi service, so they certainly have room for expansion of their customer base. Do you use the WiFi when on flights?
