This morning my pal Katie Johnston wrote that Delta Shuttle, which flies between Boston, New York, and Washington, D.C., had finally completed installing WIFi on all of its jets. Besides the East Coast routes, the carrier also has the New York-Chicago route covered.

The airline began rolling out the service in December of 2008. And now the airline says that it has the largest wired fleet in the world -- about 800 of its planes will be WiFi-enabled by this summer.

Other airlines, such as American, United, and Virgin America, offer similar services on some flights.
