You do realize that DL has close to 1000 planes in their fleet and thats main line only. Plus, DL planes are much larger than B6's planes. Its not quite so simple when you have a fleet the size and scope of DL. Last time I checked B6 only has 250 planes, and nothing bigger than a breadbox (A321). Completely different set of logistics.
This is the dumbest post yet. First of all, the majority of DL's fleet are smaller or similar in size to JetBlue's fleet. The A321 is probably one of the largest narrow body airplanes flying, with the possible exception of the 757. Let's also not forget that DL has a substantial number of smaller planes in their own fleet - 737-700, 737-800, 737-900, 717, MD88, MD90, A319, A320, A222 and finally, they operate the A321 as well. If the A321 is the size of a "breadbox" then how about all those other planes in DL's fleet that are smaller than the A321? What are they? Secondly, DL has a much larger infrastructure to make the changes to wi-fi equally as fast as JetBlue does. That said, the article that IPFreely is referring to simply quoted Ed Bastian as saying free wi-fi is what he envisions for the future for Delta - it wasn't an announcement that free wi-fi was imminent.
