Delta Offering Free In-Flight WiFi During Holiday Travel Season

Let’s face it — traveling during the holidays kinda sucks. We know this because they have made movies about it. So in an attempt to convince fliers it’s not the suckiest airline — even if they do publicly lie about their baggage policies — Delta is offering free in-flight WiFi for folks who have to fly hundreds or thousands of miles to deal with passive-aggressive in-laws.

From Nov. 20 through Jan. 2, passengers on the around 540 Delta planes equipped with Gogo Inflight Internet service will be actually be able to get something on a flight for free.

According to CNN, Air Tran and Virgin America are also offering free in-flight WiFi during the holiday travel season.

We wonder how well-equipped these planes are to handle 200 people all trying to stream Netflix at 30,000 feet.
