This is certainly big news and it’s coming from an airline that’s been hampered with bankruptcy problems in recent years, but things are looking up for Delta. In April they announced that NW Airlines would be absorbed into the fold to become the world’s largest carrier and today they’ve announced that their entire domestic fleet will offer broadband Wi-Fi by the end of 2009.
The first half of 2009 will see 133 of Delta’s MD88/90 flying contraptions outfitted with the service with another 200 Boeing 737, 757 and 767-300s to follow suit. Delta hopes to have more than 330 airplanes equipped to provide the Wi-Fi service by the end of 2009.
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.
