  19. Even with so many entertainment options on board now, I still prefer connecting with friends & family over internet chatting. That’s only achievable with Wi Fi!

  27. It lets me be productive

  28. In-Flight wi-fi has helped me spend more money shopping online!

  29. I generally don’t have the focus of attention span to do lots of work on my laptop in flight (especially since there is no room to spread out in coach). I do, however, really like using GoGo to connect to my work email and clean out and move messages within my inbox – it makes me much more productive and organized after an hour or two of on board maintenance.

  30. It allows me to see if there are any last minutes changes going on at my destination.

  31. I can keep tabs on remainder of my travel plans and kep in touch with my family to make sure they’re aware if I’m delayed.

  36. Able to get work done..

  37. Inflight Wi-Fi is great for me since I run an internet business. I need to be online all the time.

  38. Infinite IFE!

  39. In flight wifi seems to make the plane go twice as fast

  40. With the inflight wifi I stay focused on my cell phone but not annoy my companion or play around with my seat.

  41. I enjoy that I can access some things but I really miss the days of being disconnected.

  42. Inflight wifi has allowed me to go for connections for more EQM rather than direct. More time in the air, but more enjoyable. Thank you for the contest.

  43. Since I fly mostly on Delta, I’ve almost come to expect WiFI on all of my flights. I use it to catch up on the news, as well as to IM friends.

  44. I can stream nfl games. Life is good!

  45. Because how else could i Post Instagram pics from 30,000 feet, and be the envy of everyone ;-)

  46. Allows me to check on connecting gate and flight information in case of a delay.

  47. It lets me plan my next trip while on one!

  48. I use it to feed my Pinterest addiction.

  49. Being able to keep up with email and other work in the air gives me more free time on the ground.

  50. Free in flight wifi would let me better track the last minute cruise prices to see if my last minute cruise has any chance of becoming a B2B cruise.

  51. Haven’t used it yet as I have always fallen asleep before takeoff but would love to be able to catch up the news on the ground while I’m in the air!

  52. Helps keep my son entertained with movies, shows, and games

  53. Allows me to read boarding area on my flight!

  57. Allows me to at least pretend t be productive inflight…..

  58. It would be so cool to be able to Google and solve the argument between my husband and I, while in the air, instead if waiting until we land :)

  59. Being stuck on a plane finally affords me a chance to not feel guilty for spending hours aimlessly surfing the net!

  60. Having Internet access while flying is a blessing and a curse. Flying was formerly the only place where I could disconnect and catch up on reading, watching a movie, or some other neglected relaxation.

    Being able to get work done in the air helps free up time when I get on the ground, so depending on the circumstances I will use GoGo from time to time.

  61. Email all the time.

  62. In flight wifi makes it incredibly easy to be productive while flying!

  63. Instead of looking at the non-cloud work content I used to distract myself with (spreadsheets, powerpoints, downloaded e-mails), I can kick back and relax a little – read blogs, check out facebook/instagram, and of course check any late-breaking e-mails from my colleagues.

  64. As an online professor, healthcare consultant and self-professed miles and points junkie (else I wouldn’t be posting to this blog), I live and die by the Internet and on transcontinental flights (read “mileage runs”), having access to GoGo is an absolute lifesaver.

  65. It allows my kids to “stay connected” ensuring a pleasant flight!

  66. Less boredom on long flights

  67. In-flight WiFi has totally changed my productivity. Flights are no longer blackholes, but in fact some of the most productive work time I have. Plus, it lets me keep better track of my current flight, and any connection I’m making.

  70. Having wi-fi on board has allowed me to be connected.

  71. Makes cramped in coach flights a little more tolerable.

  73. It allows me to either work or read blogs (like yours)
    Work normally only on legs >1 1/2 hours airtime otherwise I’ll don’t get out my laptop

  74. Allowed me to find one of the few seats left on a connecting flight and notify the person picking me up of my new arrival time when a storm delayed our departure even though we left the gate on time. Really reduced the stress factor for me.

  75. Wifi allows me to rest on the weekends and do more work on the way to my meeting.
