Access to the Internet is available while flying on most routes these days and it can be a life saver when you’re on longer legs in the air.
While the connection is about as rudimentary as it gets, if you’re working on responding to a pile of email messages, it’s well worth paying for.
If you’re like me and have several devices that you’d like to connect, you have to decide if it’s worth the extra for each device or use today’s tip to avoid it.
That laptop computer you rely on every day can also become a private wi-fi hotspot, so you can connect all your devices with only one connection.
The Internet sharing option is available in both Mac and Windows so it’s really easy to save the extra money when connecting all your devices.
