Free in-flight Wi-Fi on JetBlue with a catch, of course


This isn’t exactly what we expected in terms of in-flight Wi-Fi, but beggars can’t be choosers and something is better than nothing. JetBlue, Yahoo! and RIM have announced free in-flight Wi-Fi services starting on the 11th of this month. But there’s a catch as there always is. The service is limited to Yahoo! Mail, Messenger and Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerries will have access to their BB mail and messenger. That’s sort of janky, in my opinion. BetaBlue as it’s being dubbed will roll out on an A320 at 8AM from JFK to SFO.
