Will You Pay $12.95 For WiFi On United Airlines?

United Airlines has announced that passengers on flights from New York City to Los Angeles and San Francisco will soon have access to WiFi… for $12.95.

If the in-air Internet connections work as billed, and if many passengers pony up as much as $12.95 per flight, then United will consider installing Wi-Fi service on other aircraft, said United spokeswoman Robin Urbanski.
