In a press release yesterday, Google, Inc. announced that they are giving away free Wi-Fi access at airports around the country this holiday season. The free wi-fi will be available at 47 Airports around the USA including Las Vegas, San Jose, Boston, Baltimore, Burbank, Houston, Indianapolis, Seattle, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, St. Louis and Charlotte. Not on the list, however, were major market airports such as LAX, O'Hare, Kennedy, Dallas and Atlanta.
Virgin America has also announced that during this same time frame, they will offer free wi-fi to all of their passengers.
This nice free gift comes at a time when airports are crowded, flights have been canceled, lines are long and tempers are short. Having free wi-fi is a wonderful treat for weary travelers...now if you can just find a place to plug in your power cord as your battery id dying!
