T-Mobile Adds United to Free In-flight Wi-Fi Perk
Eligible T-Mobile customers receive free in-flight Wi-Fi — including streaming — on American, Delta, Alaska, and now United, for the whole duration of the flight. The perk applies to domestic and short-haul international flights. On United, it's now available on planes outfitted with Viasat or Thales connectivity. This includes United's 737s, MAX8s, MAX9s, select 757-300s, and select A319s. It will be coming soon to planes with other systems — such as Gogo or Panasonic — as well as United Express flights. United recently lowered its Wi-Fi rates to $10 per flight, or $8 for MileagePlus members.

I don't fly, but for those who do, this is a great perk. Congratulations T-Mobile for doing this. Now, the other guys will have to do likewise to compete. Competition is a good thing. It brings innovation and better products over time.
