Okay, so this is really cool. I caught wind about the Southwest Airlines Wi-Fi, but it didn't cross my mind this morning when I hopped the plane from B'ham to Dallas.
Then, Bam! Here I am, blogging in real time from the skies. Their wi-fi homepage shows me the progress of the flight. (It's 8:15 a.m., we're going 450 mph, our ETA to Love Field is 68 minutes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses…) During this testing period, the service is as free as the two packs of peanuts sitting on my tray.
Now, what could I write about? The guy in 12D holds his newspaper close to his face. The woman in 13D brought cheese crackers. She offered me one, but I politely declined.
I never promised the post would be exciting. Just cool.
