If you fly Delta. And no one is sure exactly when it will arrive.
While Ed Bastian, Delta’s CEO, announced Delta’s intention to give wi-fi away for free to all passengers, even those without status, he did not indicate exactly when the update would be coming.
He did say that the move comes on the heels of customer demand: “I don’t know of anywhere else, besides in an airplane, that you can’t get free Wi-Fi,” said Bastian. “We’re going to make it free.”
Several other airlines already offer free wi-fi (of widely varying quality). Currently, Delta charges $16 for a day’s wort of free wi-fi.
This announcement comes just a week after another Delta announcement to woo passengers: a partnership with LinkedIn to offer free in-flight courses on several topics like managing stress, getting things done, communication and career development.
Just in case you wan to learn while you fly.
