JetBlue Offering wifi on Flights?
This one is a little weird but I thought I’d post it anyway.
My office is located in Brooklyn below approach paths to both JFK and La Guardia airports. There is a constant stream of air traffic overhead day and night.
Last Saturday (the 22nd) I was doing some neighborhood scanning and saw what you see here: a six-minute blast of “Jet Blue hot spot” ad-hoc network that lit up the screen, then disappeared.
Six minutes seems a little long for a plane to fly into, and out of wifi range, and I am quite skeptical that this is real but it seemed like a tantalizing prospect. As far as I know, there are no “Jet Blue” corporate laptops, and in my ‘hood there are very few networks to join. Also, I doubt I am living in the midst of Jet Blue fanboys/girls.
Any general thoughts from the web on the sighting?
