FREE inflight Internet

Emirates has launched free Wireless inflight Internet on entire fleet of Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft, with each passenger getting 10MB of data at no extra cost.FREE inflight Internet will definitely woo more flyers. Emirates will be one step ahead to its competition.

If you wish to get more data? Just $1 yes, a single dollar will land you a solid 600MB at a very good speed.

All other airlines to follow the same suit ??

10MB? That's about one web page these days, isn't it?

True..


$1 is quite cheap....we can get 600 MB ...!! 10 MB should be just for checking the speed and connectivity i think.

Let's sit back and wait for the 'outraged grandmother in 33B horrified by the filth being streamed by the pervert in 33A' stories. Coming soon (pun intended) to your local Murdoch rag.

That said, internet access would certainly help to pass the time on a long haul flight. Australia; only eight hours flight from...Australia. It takes five flying hours just to leave Queensland...

A few US carriers already offer free internet---Jet Blue and American, South West has it on some flights for a fee.

Miss Worrals has failed to be outraged by filth for a very long time. Having to view a somewhat grainy and well watched VHS copy of "Animal Fun; Volume Three" for evidentiary / work purposes (it had 'friendly' chickens among other farm animals, and yes, the owner was later called to account ) was certainly helpful, as was studying (for academic purposes) the works of the Marquis de Sade.

If you haven't read his stuff, then do. Don't bother with the free internet editions, because they're a crappy translation. Invest in the Kindle/ paperback version; you won't be disappointed. Only the Marquis could manage to write a incestuous necrophilia scene that's still pretty funny. I've suggested his works to several breathless fans of '50 Shades' (in the name of Literature). So far none of them are speaking to me...

Ha ha Worrals....I have heard of Marquis de Sade...never read any...never read any '50' either.

I did read Linda Jaivin's "Eat Me".... after hearing it reviewed on the local ABC (AM band)....a little shocked after having read it, that it even made it to the ABC review....Erotica with a Laugh......

But I expect it won't go down in the annals ( ) of history as a great book, but a chuckle nonetheless

Missed that one, will have to check it out.
How's the storm up your way? Lots of lighting here, but no real action. Bit like porn, really...

Ha ha....

Storm passed through 'Central GC' about 18:00 - 19:00 local...I'm doing boxercise then, and some of the thunder rattled windows, it sounded pretty intense....19:00 - 20:00 I'm dancing with "my Zumba girls" It was just raining by then.....

When you say 'Up your way'......have you moved South??
