No matter how rich you are and no matter what kind of perks the airlines may offer you in first class to make your flight more comfortable, there’s one thing that they’ve never offered no matter who you are: mid-flight wi-fi internet access.
JetBlue is changing that. They aren’t offering enough bandwidth to surf the net necessarily, but just enough to make checking and sending emails through Blackberries and other devices, even laptops, possible. The new perk is now being offered on select flights only, on a trial basis. But JetBlue expects within about six months to be rolling out internet access company-wide.
