How Airlines Should Offer Internet Access
from the free,-like-peanuts dept
Stewart Alsop's latest column telling airlines that they should offer internet access for free to passengers in an easy way - so they can plug in their computer and modem and be online. It should be free, even though he says he'd pay more for a ticket to do so (then it's not really free, is it?). While I'm all for free internet access while flying, I don't really see the compelling argument other than that flying sucks and this will be a good way to take passengers' minds off the fact that they have a huge person next to them overflowing into their seat. He does make the good argument, however, that a limited form of internet access based on only what the airline allows would be a huge waste of time.
