If you haven’t been on a plane within the last decade, then you’re missing out. Not only have you not witnessed the experience of quick traveling, but also on the amazing technological advance which is the internet while flying. As human beings of the 21st century, internet at our fingertips is a must at all times, even if you’re barreling through the air 40,000 feet above the ground at 500 mph. You just gotta have it. Unfortunately, like all good things in this world, this internet usually comes with a cost. The infographic below compares the different internet prices from various airlines.
If you’re flying Hong Kong Airlines, jetBlue, or Turkish Airlines, then you don’t have to pay a single pound. (Which is about 34 cents in U.S. dollars… jk.) Free stuff is always good stuff. I guess it’s not necessarily free after purchasing the plane ticket, but compared to the prices that follow, I’d say it’s a steal.
If you travel a lot, it may be worth your dime to invest in a monthly pass via U.S. Airways, as they have the cheapest monthly rate for internet. I understand that other factors such as quality of service (Most people are loyal to a single airline because of service, which is perfectly understandable. I always fly Southwest.) and cost of plane ticket are factored into which airline you’ll choose, but it’s worth looking into. If you’re a frequent flyer, you could save yourself as much as $120 a year traveling with U.S. Airways.
There’s many more options to choose from, but I’ll let you check them out for yourself. Have a good day! [via]
P.S. I really hope somebody is reading this while flying in a plane.
