  • November 30, 2009
United Airlines customers on transcontinental flights can check out a complimentary onboard Internet session with the new Try-Before-You-Buy promotion, offered in conjunction with airborne communications provider Aircell.

Through Dec. 31, first-time users of Aircell's Gogo Inflight Internet service will be offered one free session upon creating a new account. Gogo enables customers with Wi-Fi enabled devices such as laptops, smartphones and PDAs to surf the Web, check email, send and receive instant messages, and access a virtual private corporate network.

The service is available on all of United's flights between New York's Kennedy and the airline's Los Angeles and San Francisco hubs.--Tanya Irwin
