Alaska Air: (Another) First Airline to Offer In-Flight WiFi
To Alaska Air's credit, they're only claiming to be the first airline to test the in-flight service. The company will begin trying Row 44's system, a satellite-based service that is designed to work over water and across international borders. If all goes well, the airline could add wireless to each of its 114 planes. That's good news for me, since I fly Alaska almost exclusively.
As for the cost of this convenience? The article only states that Alaska is "researching various pricing options." But if you're in economy class, I wouldn't expect economy prices.
