Airlines offer free WiFi for holidays

By Washington Post Editors

AirTran Airways, Delta and Virgin America airlines are partnering with Google to offer free wireless Internet sevice on their flights through Jan. 2.

Free Gogo Internet service will be available on WiFi-equipped flights through Jan. 2. The move is part of a promotion for the Google Chrome Internet browser.

Gogo, used by many airlines, including Delta, American Airlines, Virgin America and United, offers a variety of price points and options, including single-flight, single airline and monthly passes.

In October Southwest Airlines announced that it would offer WiFi on its planes for an introductory rate of $5.

Are internet telephone services blocked when using in flight wi-fi? Also, do any of the airlines let you use miles or points for free access?
