Wi-Fi

Does DH have any plans to offer Wi-Fi in their airports? It would really make all their dellays more enjoyable.

Except for IAD, that would be controlled by the local airport. In IAD, they probably have sufficient clout and ownership of gates to push IAD to put something in. They probably can't put in anything on their own without permission from the airport authority.

B6 is also in the black! How much more would you be willing to pay for a ticket to have Wi-Fi put in? My guess is not much.

JFK terminals are owned and designed independently by each airline, whereas terminals like Dulles are run by the airport authority. JFK (Idlewild) was one of the last terminals that allowed the airlines to independently design their own spaces rather than having one unified structure for all airlines owned by a central authority. (For additional reference, look at the new terminal American just opened at JFK.)

A few retail locations in IAD offer Wi-Fi for about $10 but it is spotty and not avalable in many parts of the air port
