Yes it's finally here, the yellow cab of the sky is beginning to offer wifi on their planes. On my flight home from Oakland I was informed Southwest was on a free beta period in which you could access the internet once the plane was above 10,000 feet. First question: "Free beta," does this mean our friendly SWA will charge? Given their cost cutting business model, I would bet on yes. The second question: Why above 10,000 feet?
Did I use it on the flight? Sadly, no. I was coming back from a weekend of
turning 30 in which sleep was, well, optional.
I look forward to seeing the free wifi on all Southwest flights in the future and hopefully the corporate Southwest gurus will let wifi be free!.
