This major upgrade will begin right around the same time the merger between United and Continental should be done and dusted. All in all, the decision to move forward with WiFi is a long time coming and we applaud United for the change since Delta, American and Virgin and more have been doing it for quite some time.
As a late entrant to the "tech game," United needs to launch sky high with this one. It will be interesting, to say the least, to see how the world's self-proclaimed largest airline navigates these virtual skies. Also, no details on the pricing to tweet your heart out at 35,000 feet, but we are sure "the new United" will be letting as many people know as soon as things get rolling. Heywe're just excited to use our wireless gadgets on board and of course we'll let you know when it's finally possible on more than a few United planes.
