When a company like Google just makes too darn much money, they occasionally like to give some of it back. That's the case this holiday season when travelers will be able to enjoy free Wi-Fi on domestic flights with AirTran, Delta, and Virgin America. The service will be provided through the existing Gogo in-flight internet service, but Google is footing the bill. The free Wi-Fi will be available from November 20, 2010 through January 2, 2011
This may seem familiar to you, and you'd be right. Last year Google offered up free Wi-Fi in dozens of airports, and on Virgin flights. OF course, we could take the cynical route and note that this is probably just a product tie-in with the Google Chrome team, who is promoting the program. But maybe we'd like to pretend that Google is just in the holiday spirit.
