It’s not so easy finding free Wi-Fi at the airport these days. Only a few actually offer it, while others are simply traps for hackers to suck your hard drive dry.
Wendy Perrin, a blogger for Conde Nast Traveler, however, has a great suggestion to help track down free wireless at the airport. All you have to do is find an executive lounge and check to see if their Wi-Fi bleeds out to the common folks.
Perrin claims to have plugged in just out side the American Airlines’ Admirals Club by Gate 42 at JFK, and again outside Continental’s Presidents Club by Gate 62 at LAX. I haven’t tried this out for myself yet, but you can bet I’ll be right on it the next time I fly.
