Google gives free Wi-Fi on some flights

John Moe Nov 8, 2010

If you’re flying on Air Tran, Delta, or Virgin America this holiday season, we have some good news and some bad news. Good news: free Wi-Fi, courtesy of Google (maybe that will get people to FINALLY try this Google search engine). Bad news: you’re still flying around the holidays and as such you’ll spend most of the flight googling “why do I hate humanity so much?”
