After the news that US congress may pass a law to keep mobile phones off flights, comes news that another US carrier is looking to bring wi-fi access to the airways.

US airline Delta has announced that it will provide wi-fi access on all of its internal flights from mid-2009, according to a report on CNN. The carrier will charge a flat rate $9.95 for flights lasting up to three hours, or $12.95 for flights longer than three hours.

No word on restrictions on usage, although most likely the whole plane won't be able to stream videos or use Skype all at once. That said, anyone that's ever been stuck on a US connection with the choice of 'Watch the one movie we are showing or don't watch a movie at all' will be glad of at least being able to check emails in the air.
