  1. When or if WIFI service on their Hawaii routes ever happens is questionable. While Row 44 is expected to work over water, as far as I know it has never done so yet. I’ve been following this for a while and posting about it, but remain hopeful but cautious.

    As for the $10 cost, it is based on some research which indicated that it is the amount that will “fly.”


    1. @jeff

      thanks for that little tidbit. clearly aircell depends on proximity to cellular towers in order to work but row 44 should theoretically work everywhere.

      Where did you get the $10-cost information. Can you share the details?

  2. I recently used Aircell’s Gogo service on an SFO-JFK flight on Virgin America and loved it. $13 for 5 hrs of decent connectivity, when the alternatives are watching banal TV shows and movies, and flipping through catalogs.

    Virgin America also has power & USB outlets under the seat, so I could get as much mileage as possible out of my Air and charge my phone at the same time. Love it!

    As I’m off to Berlin next week and am facing an 11 hr flight, I’m annoyed that United & Lufthansa haven’t signed on for transatlantic service yet.
