Inflight Wifi

Onboard WiFiWifi in the air is a pretty new option for airlines but is it a lot of nonsense or a tool and deal breaker for you when you fly?

For years now I have been using Gogo Inflight wifi, for transparency sake I usually get it comped by Gogo. Over the years I have observed many people using it but what are the pros and cons and do you really need it?

The pros are you get onboard internet access for almost everything besides video streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. Though Gogo offers a selection of movies to watch.

The cons??? I can’t think of any unless you want to be disconnected while you fly, some people really do using it as a respite from the daily grind.

For many it is more than just for entertainment and checking email, with our lives in the “cloud” it is important to be connected to the web so you can access your files and use services like Google Drive and DropBox.

For others it is mostly about the opportunity to connect to coworkers, friends and family via texting/iMessage or some of the OTT services like WhatsApp or Viber. Still to this day my kids get excited to know I’m texting them from 30,000 feet up in the air.

Have you used inflight wifi? What do you use it for???
