Oh JetBlue, how do we love thee? Let me count the ways: we love your affordable fares, DirectTV at every seat, extra legroom, the absence of an annoying drink cart and the all-you-eat snacks. And now the airline has made an amazing decision to provide free Wi-Fi on all domestic flights.
Through Fly-Fi, passengers will have the ability to stream video on multiple devices through Amazon Video, plus browse the internet and use messaging apps.
“It’s 2017 and our customers expect to be connected everywhere, whether that be from the comfort of their sofa or 35,000 feet above it,” says Jamie Perry, vice president of marketing, JetBlue. “That’s why we’re so proud that JetBlue is now the only airline to offer free, high-speed Wi-Fi, live TV and movies for all customers on every plane.”
And there’s no need to wait until cruising altitude to log on: the airline is the first to introduce gate-to-gate connectivity.
Flying to the Caribbean? Unfortunately, Fly-Fi is not available on flights operating outside of the continental United States. But good news for the return trip: If the flight originates outside of the U.S., the service will be available once the plane is within the coverage area.
Here’s to hoping all airlines will soon follow suit.
