April marks the fourth month in a row where I’ve kept track of the Wi-Fi reliability on all of my flights. With over 40 flights in the books, we have enough of a sample size to start making some reasonable conclusions.
Wi-Fi is so critical for me on airplanes, and yet so unreliable. I’ve begun tracking my success rate with Wi-Fi on different carriers to see if my frustration in the moment matches my results. So far, with almost half of my flights experiencing some sort of Wi-Fi issues, my frustration seems appropriate.

The Best of the Rest is my effort to summarize all the travel stories that interested me on a daily basis. I don’t have time to write about them in length, but picked some of the best below. It’s a shortcut to find out what’s going on without reading dozens of travel blogs to get the best info.

The Best of the Rest is my effort to summarize all the travel/miles and points stories that interested me on a daily basis but didn’t have time to write about in length. Culled from over 100 blogs/authors I follow, some are passed along without comment, while I add my analysis to others. This is your shortcut to find out what’s going on in the travel world without having to read dozens of travel blogs to get all the best info.
Lifetime status is the reward for years (decades?) of loyalty to an airline. Alaska Airlines appears to be saying that loyalty to Virgin America doesn’t really mean all that much to them. If true, that’s a bit disappointing.
