For those of you that love to text, now you can do so on Southwest flights as long as you have an Apple device.
Southwest is enabling iMessage for $2 a day.
iMessage can be used by any Apple user that has iOS 5 or later with the iMessage features pre-loaded on their device.
Southwest plans to add a messaging option for Android devices in early 2014. If you have a favorite messaging app for your Andriod device, let Southwest know what it is.
I am not a big texter so this option doesnt really appeal to me but I could see it being of interest to many.
It’s also another option for inflight entertainment.
- Free live and on-demand TV compiments of DISH
- Internet Access- $8 per day, per device
- Movies- $5 per movie, per device, over 25 current & classic titles
What do you think about Southwest offering iMessage on flights? Is it something that you’d be interested in paying for? I’ll stick to free TV or if I want to splurge, pay for internet access.
