    I saw this on a blog today:

    "Today I received a manual bulletin specifically for Onboard WiFi and here’s what I can share:

    *The bulletin only mentions AC 901 as having been outfitted with the system, if you can’t see the tail number there is a placard on the wall when you board letting you know as well as an information card in each seatback pocket.

    *The system will automatically turn on and off at 10K (when we allow PED’s to be used) and will NOT work on the ground. VOIP will not work and/or be allowed.

    *It will be free during the trial run (not sure how long that will be or how many AC will be fitted) and I don’t know anything about what the expected charges will be afterward. You will be asked to fill out a survey after having used the service. FA’s will not be able to offer any technical assistance or advice regarding logging on but there is a card in each seatback pocket that will outline HOW to log on and will also contain a number for you to call if you’re having difficulties.

    There were other details related only to our procedures onboard as well as an explanation on how the control panel works etc etc.

    That’s all I know as of now!"

    Interesting to see Southwest is jumping into this too, the more the merrier!

    Now we can take pictures of birds from the window seat and upload them to flickr before the plane crashes.

    This is the first of four of our aircraft that will have a trial period of wi-fi onboard. N901WN this plane was at PDX last tuesday night! Three other planes will follow shortly!

    I received a press release from Southwest about this in my e-mail this morning:

    Click here for the press release.

    The crash comment was a little bit stiff, gTarded. Southwest has a much better safety record that most other airlines in the world. The closest they’ve ever come to an actual ‘crash’ in their nearly 40 years would be a few runway over-runs. There are very few airlines in the country (or world) that can claim that.

    Matt-
    The crash comment was about flying in general. Running into a gas station or a car with an airliner is still a crash to me. Hardly as safe as my flying record. Anytime the human body exceeds 3mph you risk serious injury or death. It doesn’t matter how many hours an airline has in the past, what matters is the NEXT upcoming hour of flight.

    "A ship in harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships are designed for."

    Thanks for the link to the press release. I like my picture better than the one they have.

    I agree that your photo is much cleaner, but they wouldn’t use it as a PR shot since the name of the airline isn’t visible. Their loss. 🙂

    At the end of the day, what you and I think defines a "crash" really doesn’t matter to anyone as we’re not the ones that make that determination for the record books. As far as the NTSB & FAA are concerned – they have never had a "crash". The situation at MDW was tragic and I feel very sorry for that little boy’s family.

    True. The tail is not visible and the N# barely is. I did take some others of this plane. I’ll have to post them.

    Actually at the end of the day what I think defines a "crash" really DOES matter. Putting a Boeing 737 on top of a family car is a CRASH! Don’t get me started on what I think about the FAA and NTSB. Just look what they said about TWA800 & UAL93 to name only two. They’re not the only ones keeping record books.

    Ha ha, thanks Matt. They’re keeping the picture alive. Nowadays I see LOTS of these bumps on Southwest’s planes. Back when I took this picture, they were rare.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/matt-bna] I’ve noticed they now have these on a couple of their state liveried planes. I’ll have to take some updated photos of those now.
