As many of you may know, American Airlines has begun offering wireless Internet (for $12.95) on their nonstop flights between JFK-SFO, JFK-LAX and JFK-MIA. It’s the first time in a couple of years that wireless is available after Connexion by Boeing went out of business; their problem was that they charged way too much at $29.95. I paid the high price a few years ago on a SAS flight to Copenhagen and freaked my friends out when I called them from the air using Skype. American Airlines is using a company called AirCell (Aircell.com) and supposedly, they are blocking all VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) calls. However, there’s one website out there that can bypass those firewalls. The service is called Phweet and it only works for people who have Twitter (Twitter.com/JohnnyJet) accounts (sign up is free and easy). Of course, this tactic to get around the problem probably won’t last long because executives from American Airlines read this newsletter so it’s only a matter of time before they block it. If you do manage to make a phone call, please use a headset and whisper so you don’t disturb your seatmates.
