What's Going On With Air Canada's WiFi? Anything? Bueller?
Last fall we let you know about Air Canada, and their plans to offer in-flight WiFi. Well, that’s all we’ve heard since then, so we’re getting suspicious if this is actually going to happen. Maybe they were just jumping on the WiFi bandwagon, with hopes that things would magically work out in the end.
The only news coming out of our neighbor to the north deals with passenger numbers for February. We feel bad for you Air Canada, sorry about the 10%-ish drop in passenger loads, but we want to know more. How about a snazzy press release featuring the specific flights, destinations, and times that the new Aircell service will be offered?
For now we’ll just let you know that some jerks were shining lasers into the cockpit of an Air Canada jet this week. The pilots reported a green flashing light when they were trying to land in Toronto after taking off from San Francisco. We’re not going to suggest that the laser trouble-makers were making a statement about the airline’s WiFi promises, but we’re not going to completely deny it either. Seriously though, laser pointers and airliners do not mix, don’t be uncool—someone’s mom and dad are on that plane.
Any info about the pending WiFi Service aboard Air Canada? Let us know.
