Emirates revises inflight Wi-Fi service

2 Comments

Emirates has revised its inflight Wi-Fi service.

Effective immediately, all Emirates Skywards Platinum and Gold members can enjoy free unlimited Wi-Fi during their Emirates flight, regardless of their class of travel. This privilege also applies to all Emirates Skywards members travelling in first and business class.

Economy class customers and non-Skywards members can now enjoy 20MB of free data usage within the first 2 hours of log in, double the current 10MB free being offered.

Additional data can be purchased in 150MB or 500MB blocks, with tiered discounts for Skywards Silver and Blue members.

“Emirates has made significant investments in our inflight connectivity. Today, Wi-Fi services are available on over 200 of our aircraft, and it is a service that Emirates continues to subsidise heavily,” said Adel Al Redha, Emirates Vice President and Chief Operations Officer. “Inflight Wi-Fi usage, already popular from the start, has grown tremendously. Our new inflight Wi-Fi plans reflect Emirates’ commitment to continue providing this as a free service for as many customers as possible, especially to our most frequent flyers.”

It's a good push towards the future, although everytime I've tried using airplane wifi it has been too slow to be of any value at all. If someday we can get high-speed internet as a standard free feature on planes, it'll really help those long flights back home.

Why only the posh people up front?
