Delta to offer wifi domestically by 2009

Via The Flying Critic (who cites PC World):

GoGo will cost Delta flyers $9.95 on flights of three hours or less, and $12.95 for flights that are longer than three hours. Delta says it expects to begin to offer in-flight Wi-Fi early 2009.

This is pretty exciting news, although I’m not sure whether to be happy or sad about it. While I love being connected in general, one thing I love about flying is the fact that I’m totally disconnected and can’t be bothered by anyone from the “outside” world. Sadly that will go away as this expands, but at the same time we can become more productive (or for that matter unproductive).

The prices seem quite reasonable as well, in my opinion.
