Wi-fi in the friendly skies

So I had a quick work trip to Chicago this past week, and I’m headed to D.C. this coming week for an even quicker work trip.  Both are fairly lengthy trips – which can be a good thing if you are looking to get off the grid for a little bit, or a bad thing if you need to be connected. 

I found myself on my return trip from Chicago needing to send urgent emails and have internet connectivity.  I’m not sure how many airlines offer this service now, but Alaska Airlines has wi-fi internet on their flights.  So cool!  It’s been a while since I’ve traveled for work, so this really may not be all that new and cool to others. 

If you are a frequent traveler, you can pay for monthly subscriptions, or just pay $12.95 for one-time access (that lasts the duration of your flight).  And the connection speed is quite fast.  I didn’t have any interruptions or lag for the type of work I was doing.

I could email, surf the web, even VPN into work and chat with my work colleagues.  It helped pass the time of my 4.5 hour flight, and allowed me to be quite productive.  I highly recommend it – and plan to use it whenever I can!
