Delta: Only $399.95 for a Year’s Worth of Wi-Fi.

Delta is offering an amazing bargain: for $400, they’ll give you a year’s worth of wi-fi on their planes. Not all of their planes, of course, since some don’t have wi-fi. But don’t worry, you’re still paying! United charges just about the same amount for a year’s worth of extra legroom. But you are now welcome to pay $400 for Internet access. Awesome!

Access is usually $15/flight, so after you fly 26 flights, the rest of essentially free!

(Editor’s Note: that was all sarcastic.)

Here’s the email:
