Alaska Airlines Is Going Whole Hog With In-Flight WiFi From Gogo

February 24, 2010 at 1:34 PM | by | ()

It's been a year since Alaska Airlines began testing their in-flight WiFi and we wondered if they would ever just go whole hog and plug in the whole fleet, already. Well, we're happy to say that they've finally decided to do it, but not with Row 44 as they initially planned, but with the most popular provide of in-flight wifi: Gogo.

If you're not familiar with Gogo, you should know that they already have outfitted Virgin America's fleet, AirTran's fleet, and many planes for the likes of American, Delta and United. Although there's no date yet set for the completion of fleet-wide installation for Alaska Airlines, they are already working to install it on the first 737-800.

Hopefully soon we'll all be able to make bad puns from 35,000 feet: "Juneau where I'm flying now?!"
