Dear SWA, sign me up as a Beta tester

According to the Denver Post, Southwest Airlines in the next nine months hopes to begin a prototype of some type of technology that will provide Internet access and “potential entertainment services.” I don’t know what the CEO Gary Kelly means when he says “entertainment services,” but if they would provide the Wi-fi service, I could entertain myself. I’m just guessing, but perhaps “entertainment services” means a TV and pay-per-view programming available in a chair-back video monitor (ala JetBlue) that includes the ability to access the Internet. That’s not “wifi” as I would define it, but hey, I’ll take it.

  • You would be the perfect person for that job…

    They better figure out a way to incorporate some sort of power point also, so I can plug my iPod in and charge it.
