Business Travelers Choose Wi-Fi over Food

According to a story in today's L.A. Times about airlines racing to provide wi-fi for passengers, a survey conducted by the Wi-Fi Alliance indicated that "[m]ore than 70% of those surveyed would choose an airline with Wi-Fi over one that provided meal service . . . ."

Food for thought.

Whe in-flight connectivity was all the rage a decade ago, the same kind of survey results were touted as justification for alleged demand by the flying public. As it turned out, hardly any air travelers wanted to pay for the in-seat-power that would keep their electronic devices running. No passenger is going to shell out $12.95 for WiFi access when their laptop batteries are about to expire.
