Jason Rabinowitz, the data research manager for online airline platform Routehappy states in a Fortune report that: "When customers get on a flight that doesn't have Wi-Fi, they get angry."So how does one avoid those lulls in flights where there's no way to check emails, chat with friends and family or check this: take cool photos of your inflight meal? Simple - by flying aboard these 6 airlines that give you powerful WiFi for FREE.
Emirates offers free WiFi access for the first 10MB and offers a further access with packages starting at $1. Not bad since Emirates ranks as one of the best onboard Wi-Fi in world.
The Philippine's flag carrier offers 15MB free with reasonably priced packages for continued access. Another great thing is for non-credit card holders - scratch cards for WiFi access are available for purchase from the cabin crew.
Norwegian speaks the truth as it is: "After all, you rely on being online when you're on the ground. Why should it be any different when you fly?" The carrier offers free access across all classes on its flight to Europe, the United States and the Caribbean.

Flying mostly between London and Hong Kong, this small company which runs a modest fleet of A330-200 planes offers free Wi-Fi from start to finish.
This Bangkok-based budget airline is one of the few of its kind to offer free Wi-Fi. It comes in many of its flights with full implementation well underway.
"Ladies and gentlemen, feel free to roam about the Internet." This is the message that pops up on JetBlue's description of what they call as 'Fly-Fi'.
