Airlines That Offer Free Internet

We have become a society that is virtually almost always connected and dependant on the internet. Luckily, for the people who don’t enjoy the disconnected feeling on planes and are budget conscious, more and more airlines are offering free internet. There are currently only a portion of airlines who offer this service, JetBlue Airways being the first airline to offer this service, but hopefully this will spark a change for free Wi-Fi on more airlines.

The airlines that offer free internet are:

Emirates – For Emirates, the first 10MB are free, but if you’re looking to do more than updating Facebook or sending some emails then you can pay another $1 for 500MB whenever needed to provide you with internet throughout the flight.
