We all want to be connected – and more flights than ever before give us that opportunity. US travelers enjoy access to wifi on about two-thirds of domestic flights, while our colleagues in Europe have access to wifi on less than 20% of European flights.
The pricing of inflight wifi varies by route and airline – but when a deadline is looming, it’s a worthy buy. For those who aren’t quite ready to shell out money for the service, United Airlines is starting to roll out the opportunity to buy wifi access with your Mileage Plus miles.
Launching this month, it will begin to roll-out to the domestic flight through the first quarter, with expected completion of the international fleet by mid-summer.
