US Airways hub

If you travel on a regular basis, you've likely heard frustrations with US Airways.  While other airlines are offering DIRECTV, Wi-Fi, and other in-flight goodies, US Airways offers no entertainment (my last 5,000 mile roundtrip was on US Airways, and I can attest to how boring the flights are).  On that note, travelers can rejoice - US Airways is finally joining the 21st century and outfitting its fleet with Wi-Fi connectivity.

In the coming months, US Airways will be outfitting its fleet of Airbus A321's with Aircell's Gogo in-flight Wi-Fi systems.  When the process is complete in June, all 51 A321's will be outfitted with an exterior Wi-Fi symbol, and users will be able to see which planes have connectivity at the time of booking.  Pricing is expected to be $4.95 for up to one and a half hours of internet, $9.95 for three hours, and $12.95 for any session longer than three hours.  Smartphones will be charged $4.95 for one and a half hours, and $7.95 for unlimited use.

As it stands, there are five A321 planes that offer the in-flight Wi-Fi (news to me, as I fly US Air regularly and have never been on one).  It's nice to see the airline (finally) offer Wi-Fi.  Now, how about some DIRECTV?
