TAPintoTravels - The fact that we are 25,000 feet in the air and have written this article is quite impressive.  The notion that we also uploaded the HD photos is astonishing.  This is a great system.

We have used onboard WiFi before, but usually it isn’t free and it certainly don’t offer any bandwidth.  The first photo we fed into the system was 181k.  Boom!  Uploaded instantly.  Then, 2MB.  This one took 20 seconds.  That is excellent.

Their interface is nice, but you have to scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the internet link.  After that, it is smooth sailing.

We weren’t expecting much, but we have to give this a 10 out of 10.  The only bad thing is that you have no excuse not to work on the flight. It is a shame it is only on their B-737’s.  This would be so wonderful on the long haul flights back to the States on the Dreamliners.

Check our the slide show above for the play by play.
