Your In-Flight Wi-Fi Research Ends Here!
The world we live in is constantly connected, so why should flying be any different? In fact, it could be argued that the time we spend on an airplane is when we need the web most. Nothing passes the time faster than beginning your mission to make friends jealous – instantly uploading those wing pics to Instagram and checking in from the sky.
Fortunately, WiFi is now available on many flights. However prices vary dramatically and whilst some airlines have chosen to capitalize on our need for connection, others are offering this service for free. But if you're not so lucky to be on one of these flights, the following information will help you find the best deals - as well as which airlines to avoid!
Take into consideration that for a long haul flight it's likely to be more economical to purchase a day pass than pay an hourly rate. Lufthansa, for example, charges less for twenty-four hours than if you were to buy two one-hour sessions separately. If you're a regular flyer you can upgrade to a monthly pass for around $50 with most transatlantic airlines. In some cases, airlines offer a cost per megabyte which is worth considering if you're using the web for simple tasks. However, a set rate per device is usually preferable.
Be wise with your choices and you can enjoy in-flight wifi for a reasonable cost and stay connected through the clouds!
