    But seriously, I'm on a plane and I expect everyone here to keep me company for the next several hours while I'm on this flight. Not the least of which is I might want to recline my seat or use the bathroom and will need someone to advise if it's ok. And I paid $12.95 for this wifi. So imma get my money's worth.

    Put your seat back and take a pic of it! Hopefully on a long haul it's three feet forward of the guy in front of you. Maybe lay that sucker flat?

    make sure you stream an HD movie to slow down the bandwidth for everyone else.

    I thought WiFi would interfere with the plane's control systems...

    If you have someone next to you, half-glance at them annoyingly as if you know they're reading your screen. Bonus points: Sit up, rock up onto one butt check, grip your armrests and grimace for a full five seconds, before going back to your laptop/tablet/cocktail.

    To bad you didn't load Airport 75 for the trip. Maybe you can stream it from Amazon.

    I recall when "car phones" were a big deal. People always used to shout because the call quality sucked and had to "apologize" because "I'M ON MY CAR PHONE!" Then when handheld cell phones became popular, people again had to "apologize" they were "ON MY CELL PHONE!" Now people are using wifi on planes. It's just another installment of "look at me taking advantage of the latest technology! How cool am I?!!"

    Buy a drink for the dude sitting next to you. Find out his GT user name.

    He appears to be a very nice Muslim man so I doubt he's a frequent poster here.

    Without looking imma guess a 737 it's the most common type of shorthaul plane oit of this airport.

    I did see a dreamliner and I never get tired of seeing the A380.
