jetblue fly-fiJetBlue is betting that high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity and a wider variety of VOD content, along with free snacks and more legroom in coach, will help it attract more travelers, as well as keep them coming back. The no-frills airline on Jan. 11 touted that its JetBlue Fly-Fi service “creates an experience like your living room in the sky.”

That includes free access to high-speed Wi-Fi from the departure to arrival gate, DirecTV VOD and Amazon Video streaming, as well as chatting on every flight, JetBlue highlights in a news release. Faster than competitors´ “pricey” Wi-Fi connectivity and services, Fly-Fi also enables passengers to use more than one personal device on-board.

JetBlue was the first to distribute live TV to every seat. First introduced in Dec. 2013, the airline recently completed Wi-Fi installation for its entire fleet. In addition to upgraded Wi-Fi, JetBlue integrates these entertainment options:
