Delta Air Lines made the first announcement this week, offering Wi-Fi broadband Internet access starting this fall to passengers.

Their service will cost a flat fee of $9.95 for Internet access for flights under 3 hours, while longer flights will cost $12.95.

The move to Wi-Fi adds more features to flights, as Delta is goinig up against JetBlue which offers satellite TV and XM radio to passengers.

Many airlines are set to do battle with Delta, as American Airlines will launch their own Internet service before 2008 ends, with Continental, Southwest, and Virgin America following suit.
