It seems as if there's a Wi-Fi battle brewing between my airline of choice and my airport of choice. I tend to fly out of Newark Airport on Continental Airlines most often. Being a frequent traveler, I joined the Continental's Presidents Club, which gives my a pleasant environment to work in while waiting for a flight.
Unfortunately, the folks that run the airport are upset with Continental for offering "free" Wi-Fi service to its patrons. I'm not sure where they come off saying that it's free, seeing as there's a significant annual membership fee.
But if you're not in the President's Club, you have to pay a $7.95 fee to get Internet access (and try to work amongst the masses patrolling the airport's restaurants, shops, etc.). Hopefully, Continental wins this battle, or they will have some angry customers. The percentage of people on the Internet at any given time in the Presidents Club is quite high.
