Great news for frequent travellers who choose to fly Delta Air Lines. According to the Skift Global Forum which took place last Friday, Delta’s CEO Ed Bastian has shared with the world that they are going to make Wi-Fi free on Delta.

Bastian believes free Wi-Fi will be something that Delta will be offering in the not too distant future. There is nothing you need to do to get this Wi-Fi for now except wait.

Bastian estimated it could cost more than $1 million per plane to install wired IFE, while wireless IFE will cut that cost down “by two-thirds.”

Meanwhile, perhaps unsurprisingly, American Airlines is being hesitant about offering a free Wi-Fi.

Once again Delta looks like it is going to win when comparing their products in both Coach and Business. We have actually compared Delta Vs American Vs United Airlines in Business Class in more detail, so you can quite easily work out which airline offers the best product for your own travel, although this article was written pre free-wifi.

In the UK, American Express Rewards convert directly to airline miles. The FREE Amex Gold Card is an incredible deal with a huge free bonus of Membership Rewards. For the UK card, you will need to drop me an email for a link to get extra referral bonus points.

Other UK cards worth considering include the BA Premium Plus American Express Card, which has a bonus of 26,000 Avios (drop me an email for a referral to get bonus points) when you spend 3,000 GBP in your first three months of card membership. The cost is 195 GBP per anum but if you take advantage of the signup bonus and the 2-for-1 certificate you more than cover the cost of the card. I spend exactly 10k GBP on this card to spark a 2-4-1 voucher plus I get 1.5 Avios per 1 GBP spent.
