My Airtran flights from Orlando to Denver via Denver during Christmas are all free wifi. Thank you to our next Supreme Overlords.

In for 2.

Funny thing: I tried signing up for the gogo in-flight service from my Chrome browser over Thanksgiving, and it didn't work. Had to sign up vie IE, then switch to Chrome. :)

Note: I did not have to sign up for it, it just showed up on my itinerary.

"Most major airlines"? It's only on Virgin America, AirTran, and Delta.

IT DOESN'T WORK!! BECAUSE IT'S FREE FOR EVERYONE ON YOUR FLIGHT, IT TAKES 5 MINUTES FOR YOUR EMAIL PAGE TO LOAD!!

STUPID IDEA GOOGLE, STUPID IDEA.

have used the free wifi on delta about 10 times and it worked rather well. Thanks Google, my 30 day package had expired

@korasher: I had to sign up. It's free, but it asks for an email address, and you have to input a captcha in order to connect to gogo in-flight in the first place.

@journeyloaded: You're right, I should have read it closer but since I was in flight at the time I wanted to get the deal out before they shut it off. Which happened shortly after I posted :)

So google can spy on you while flying.
Now all electronic devices must be turned off.

Sorry guys, but I wont buy or take anything free from a digital media company that's adamantly against net-neutrality.

Just got back yesterday from a trip on airtran. Yes it was free. But slow doesn't even begin to describe it. I ran a speed test after I realized how slow it was and got...... .09 Mbps. Tried watching nextflix and not possible, get 30 secs then it would stop and cache another 30. Checking email was painful. Not sure if it was a normal experience or if it was slow because lots were using it or something else. Nice featue, I'm just saying don't count on great speed. And this happened on the return trip as well

Just flew across country twice on Virgin.

Service dropped in and out, and when it was working, it was roughly dialup speeds.

Better than nothing, but not by much.

@frossetmareritt: Google is providing it (Google is for Net Neutrality), not Virgin. It's an advertising campaign for Chrome.
