For the first time ever, I have lied to you. Not intentionally of course, but I did, just the same.
Last week, I told you we would be talking about zip-lock bags today, but alas, I have postponed that until next week to bring you some more relevant news.
Contrary to the sound of the title, this is not about a new sorority or fraternity.
Nope. It is about something much more exciting.
At least it's exciting to me. I hope it is to you as well.
News broke last week about Delta Airlines plans to have wi-fi service for laptop users in the air on all domestic flights by this time next year.
Can I get a Woo-Hoot??!!! An Amen??! A Hallelujah??!!
Because of the noise issue and the possibility of disturbing other passengers, you still won't be able to use your cell phone. Any sound created as a result of the laptop, must be muted by wearing headphones.
But still, how great is this news! Anything I can possibly do to entertain myself and avoid the uncomfortableness that is flying is a bonus for me!
That coast-to-coast flight will go a lot quicker if I can read my favorite blogs, surf the net and maybe write a blog post or two in the air. I could even upload and organize my vacation photos on the flight back!
For domestic flights under three hours, the you'll pay $9.95. Flights over three hours, $12.95.
You know I am not a fan of extra fees, but I'd rather pay for this service as opposed to two bucks for water, or paying for a pillow and blanket.
I am crossing my fingers that the service does so well that Delta has no choice but to expand the program to international flights.
So, what are your thoughts? Will you be taking advantage of this if flying Delta? Do you think it is a reasonable fee? Will this encourage you to fly Delta on your next trip?
