We’ve got a double dose of Jen from Deals We Like this week! She knows the Southwest Airlines’ Companion Pass inside & out and shares her expert insight with us. Her big deal this week is the current promotion run by Upside, which includes some FREE Bose headsets!. Seth from Wandering Aramean gives a dig dive into the history of in-flight WiFi, why it seems like it takes forever for upgraded equipment and speeds and what the future of it looks like.
