Wireless on United Airlines

United Airlines just received the OK to provide wireless Internet access during its domestic flights. Although this is already being done on some international flights, United is the first domestic airline to receive approval. They will be using Verizon’s Airfone service. Don’t look for it before mid to late 2006. No information yet on the cost.

Although United is currently not looking at provide cell phone access, with wireless Internet access, you could use a VoIP service and get cell phone access anyway.
