Chalk another one up for Amazon Prime. The online retailer's signature membership program already includes free shipping, streaming videos and music. And it just got better. Amazon Prime members can now get free Wi-Fi on certain airline flights, too.
“We want to provide the best digital video experience to our customers and we’re excited that with JetBlue, we will raise the bar in airline entertainment,” said Michael Paull, Amazon’s VP of digital video.
JetBlue usually charges $9 for access to its in-flight Fly-Fi service, but now Prime members can log on absolutely free of charge. The service will initially roll out this year on JetBlue's Airbus A321 and A320 aircraft. Next year look for the service to expand to Jet Blue's Embraer E190 planes.
