Just another 4:30am alarm clock, set to go make and adventure in air world. This time it was chasing down the first FlyFi wifi flight on JetBlue’s E90 fleet. And it was awesome, even with the early start.
With tons of bandwidth available through its satellite wifi connection JetBlue is upping the content library, adding MLB.tv live streaming on all its flights.
JetBlue and Amazon Prime are teaming up to offer streaming media for free while in flight. That’s a bold move given bandwidth costs but it just might work out given the changes in the economics the industry is experiencing.
The fastest internet in the sky will remain free for customers as JetBlue re-ups its commitment to keep its FlyFi product fee-free. Alas, the fitting of the smaller E190 planes is delayed a bit, but still expected to complete within a year.
It is not often that one gets to test multiple in-flight wifi providers on the same day. I guess I can say I got lucky in that regard. Getting to use three different services within a 10-day span made for some good “comparison shopping” so to speak.
