This morning I spotted this photo of Southwest Airlines’ in-flight Wi-Fi portal on Flickr, specifically on the Yahoo! blog’s Yodel Anecdotal photo stream (click on the image to see the original more clearly).
The pic was snapped over a year ago, but as you can see, the portal largely offers what service provider Row 44 promised it would – a virtual shopping mall (via SkyMall) some free games, entertainment and news content and various promotions. Southwest worked with Yahoo! on the home page (quite clearly).
So how many Southwest birds have been equipped with Row 44′s Ku-band satellite-based in-flight connectivity system?
About 10 aircraft have Wi-Fi on board “and 28 more – tentatively scheduled – will be equipped by the end of October”, reveals a source.
