Opening up Facebook makes perfect sense, since it is the number one visited site on the worlds largest provider of inflight Internet.
With over 1000 installations on AirTran Airways, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, US Airways and Virgin America, being able to kill some time by getting online at 30,000 feet is a brilliant inflight amenity.
To access the complimentary service, you’ll need to wait till the cabin crew allows the use of electronic devices, then simply select the Gogo wireless network on your mobile device or laptop. Open your browser and click on the Ford/Facebook banner.
