Nice to see BetaBlue is starting to mature a bit. Hopefully they've worked out the bugs enough to move on to the next phase of allowing more bandwidth through.

JetBlue adds more e-mail options to in-flight Wi-Fi
Posted by Holly Jackson Post a comment

JetBlue passengers, rejoice. Now there is yet another way to pass the time during flights. JetBlue's free in-flight Wi-Fi will no longer require Yahoo or BlackBerry accounts to check e-mail and chat with friends.

Starting Wednesday, JetBlue's plane equipped with in-flight Wi-Fi will let users with Gmail, AOL, Hotmail, and Windows Live Mail addresses check their e-mail while onboard. It also will offer Microsoft Exchange so travelers can communicate with their office on the ground. No Web surfing is available, but thanks to a deal with Amazon, passengers on the so-called BetaBlue plane can log on to the mobile version of Amazon.com's site and shop.

The BetaBlue plane, which often flies transcontinental routes, has been equipped with Wi-Fi since December. Several other airlines, including Southwest, American Airlines and Virgin, have plans to connect to the Web in the near future.

This is very good news! Basically it means that the initial system offerings were a success and the next pase is rolling out...wonder what will be next if this phase is also a success!

While all of this is nice, it would sure be a lot better if they had web surfing available.  Wink

Phase 1 was VERY limited with functions in conjunction with Yahoo! and Blackberry, basically IMing and e-mail service. Bandwidth is one main concern, so little by little things get added.

This is great! Are there plans to upgrade more A/C to offer wi-fi?
