Wi-Fi Coming To Southwest Airlines Next Year

Southwest says a test of Wi-Fi on its planes was successful, so they’re going to expand the service to all of their planes next year.

“We have concluded our testing for inflight Wi-Fi and are very happy with both the technical performance of the system and the response of customers who have used it,” said Dave Ridley, Southwest Airlines senior vice president of marketing and revenue management, in a statement.

We love the trend of airlines getting Wi-Fi. We can’t wait until their customers are helping us liveblog tarmac delays as they happen.
