February Flyers Can Skip the Symptoms of Facebook Withdrawal

February 2, 2011

By Cara Brooke Schultz

AirTran Airways, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta, United Airlines, U.S. Airways, and Virgin America will be offering complimentary access to Facebook for the month of February. Flyers can access Facebook courtesy of Ford on any flight that has Gogo Inflight Internet.

How does it work? Once the pilot makes the announcement that personal electronic devices and laptops can be turned on, flyers will be able to get on the Gogo Wi-Fi network. From the Wi-Fi network, flyers can click on the sponsored Ford/Facebook banner and be directed to their Facebook page. The service will only be free for the month of February and will only allow people to access Facebook. Should you feel the itch to check your email, or visit Twitter, you will have to pay $4.95. 

After February, do you think you would spend the money to access Facebook, your email, or your favorite blog?
