Good to Go with Gogo
Filing this under coolest thing ever. Thought I was going to be able to spend five hours on a flight to Los Angeles not connected to the internet when SURPRISE...there's a new service being offered by American Airlines called Gogo that enables you to go wireless for $12.95 per day. According to their homepage, Gogo is the first company to bring affordable Internet service to domestic airlines.
I'm using the service right now and I have to admit, it's pretty cool. Didn't care for the buy your food on the plane deal ($10 for a chicken sandwich and chips) but I guess in light of the economy and gas prices, airlines have to get their cash any way they can. And I do have to admit, the chicken sandwich was tasty. Personally, I would totally purchase those Otis Spunkmeyer chocolate chip cookies that they reserve for the business class and first class passengers. (In case anyone in customer relations is listening.)
Anyway, for those of you traveling on American, bring your laptop and you'll be good to GoGo.
