I’m not sure I ever thought I’d say that. But if this is a Delta upgrade I’d like a downgrade.
Earlier in the year Delta announced a big enhancement for their international fleet. They also announced improvements to their domestic fleet’s wifi system.
Air-to-ground Technology Improvements
Short-haul domestic aircraft in Delta’s fleet with air-to-ground systems will be upgraded with Gogo’s next generation air-to-ground technology as it becomes available. Delta’s Boeing 717-200, MD-88 and MD-90 aircraft are slated to get the system and will also offer significantly upgraded speeds.
Terrible Wifi Speeds
But on a recent flight I saw no such improvement. In fact, the wifi was crawling along at a snails pace.
This is as bad as the normal speed. I have to guess that this flight was not operated by an upgraded flight. Be on the look out for the upgraded wifi on your domestic and international flights in the future. This flight sure needed the upgrade.
