Two-third business class passengers don’t fancy Wi-Fi

by Richa 27. September 2013 02:24

Business travelers are important customers for all the airlines. Most important world airlines are upgrading their services and in-flight amenities to entice this segment of customers. After all, they have a significant role to play in their revenues. Wi-Fi is one such facility that has caught the fancy of airlines these days.

Most commercial airlines operating in the United States are doing their bit to attract the lucrative chunk of travelers to fly with them by offering internet connectivity up in the air. They believe passengers traveling on business class tickets would love to remain connected with work, and family through their journey. However, a study conducted recently by American Express Global business travel has come up with an interesting report.

According to the research, two-thirds of business travelers are least interested in connecting to the outside world while traveling. Instead, they like to take this opportunity to connect to their own selves and their passions like reading a book, sleeping, chatting, or watching a movie.

Of the total passengers surveyed 35 percent said that their companies are willing to bear the cost of the in-flight Wi-Fi, 38 percent passengers do not mind paying from their own pockets for the onboard Wi-Fi. However, 61 percent or two-thirds of passengers instead of getting a chance to remain connected online wish otherwise. Instead, they wish to break away from work and indulge in small luxuries of life.
