It is so frustrating boarding a flight and having to turn off your smartphone or tablet. You’ve got this wonderful entertainment device and window onto the world of the web and yet you can’t use it to get online for the duration of the flight. Thanks to a partnership between Delta Airlines and Gogo, that blanket ban on the Internet is a thing of the past. Starting this month you can enjoy in-flight Wi-Fi on flights within the continental USA and Alaska.
