This’ll be a quick post – But I just couldn’t refrain. I’m on my way back on American Airlines from Hong Kong, essentially a 43 hour “boots on the ground” trip, that was a mix of mileage run and a chance to go barbecue with friends. You can check out some of my tweets on twitter by checking #43hoursinHKG. I’m not the best at twitter, but I’m trying this whole hashtag thing, I’d love for you to weigh in on if there is value add or not with the hashtags.
So anyway, here’s the novelty. For $19 (which isn’t cheap, but still amazingly priced for what it is), I’ve purchased wifi for the entire flight. Granted this is a short – 14+ hour flight, but still, less than $1.25 an hour is pretty good… and this is first time I’ve ever bought wifi onboard. I figure – why not go big or go home… I suppose I could’ve bought it on the way out which was 16.5 hours, but, I ended up sleeping for 10+ hours of that flight, which was amazing…. a-m-a-z-i-n-g!
Ok, so yeah, this was just a quick post to highlight how far we as a people have come, that we can connect to wifi and share information with the world (or at least, the very smartest of them – aka our blog readers), for an affordable rate, from 31,000 feet, over the middle of the Pacific ocean. I think this a great example of grabbing the brass ring.
