  1. 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!

  2. 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 :)

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Wifi totally keeps me in contact for work. Things change hour by hour. I don’t have to worry about missing out.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. Gogo allows me to research restaurants/activities/hotels at the destination city when I take spur of the moment trips.

  12. I think that the ability to stay on top of work while flying is the best part of in flight wifi.

  13. It is really nice to be able to communicate with others while you are in flight if you are meeting up with them at a midpoint or final destination and they are starting from a different location than you are. Thanks MJ

  14. It allows me to ignore the person sitting next to me, known or stranger by pretending to do serious work :)
