Airlines Offering Inflight WiFi
Wi-Fi is everywhere, from cafes to bus stops, trains to airports, it’s a service that people on the go value highly. Unfortunately the Wi-Fi craze hasn’t reached its fullest potential yet.
Though frequent fliers have made their pleas to the airlines to offer onboard internet, when the service is available it isn’t always up to par with the tech-savvy traveler’s needs. Even though an increasing amount of airlines like Ryanair (to trial later this year on top business routes), Finnair, Srilankan Airlines, Kuwait Airways, TAAG Angola Airlines, and WestJet have announced that they’ll soon be implementing WiFi, there’s still a long way to go when it comes to the service, as exorbitant pricing and speeds that would make even a snail yawn are deterring fliers from considering purchasing internet aboard. At the moment only eight airlines offer free inflight WiFi: Emirates, JetBlue, Norwegian, Turkish Airlines, Air China, Philippine Airlines, Hong Kong Airlines and Nok Air.
