Hearts and Flowers and Great Inflight Wi-Fi

February 10, 2017 | Author: Carrie Fan

Valentine’s Day is all about the traditional symbols of love. Cards and candy, flowers and gifts, poems and love letters express that special connection between sweethearts, family and friends near and far. Even the internet and social media come into play, providing a modern way for loved ones to express their feelings across the miles.

Staying connected is a priority on this red-letter day and every day, even for those who will spend some time this week strapped to an airplane seat.

That’s where Honeywell comes in. If you’re flying on an airplane equipped with Honeywell’s latest JetWave satellite communications technology, you’ll have fast and reliable Wi-Fi just about anywhere you fly – even over the ocean. Only Honeywell can connect you to Inmarsat’s Ka-band satellite constellation that enables the Global Xpress (GX) Aviation connectivity solution on leading airlines and the Jet ConneX solution for business aircraft.

Whether you’re flying to be with your Valentine, heading out on business or travelling just for fun, Honeywell can help you stay connected and celebrate this special day. Here are a few things that better inflight Wi-Fi will let you do during your downtime:

  1. Shop. According to U.S. News & World Report, Americans alone spent close to $19 billion Valentine’s Day gifts in 2015 – with close to 25 percent of that total spent online. Even though you’re airborne, fast and reliable inflight Wi-Fi lets you access thousands of sites to order flowers, candy, jewelry and just about anything else your heart desires online – and securely – with just a few keystrokes. Giant e-retailers like Amazon are always a good place to start your search.
  2. Message. There are lots of online options for sending Valentine’s Day greetings – ranging from animated online greeting cards, to social-media shout outs, to texts and tweets. But if romance is your objective, you could do a lot worse than taking some downtime to compose a letter, according to a UPI report that says 62 percent of women prefer a personal letter to other traditional Valentine’s gifts.
  3. Meme. From the sweet to the salty, the internet is full of Valentine’s memes ripe for posting to the social media app of your choice. Search “Valentine meme” online and be prepared to chuckle, groan and probably annoy your seatmate. You probably don’t want to post too many, though, for fear of getting “unliked.”
  4. Watch. Sign into Netflix or another favorite online video streaming service to enjoy your favorite Valentine’s special, like the popular cartoons featuring The Simpsons or Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang. Also available are a whole lot of romantic comedies with Valentine’s themes and love stories like, well, “Love Story.” We’re not responsible watery eyes.
  5. Search. If you don’t happen to have a special Valentine at the moment, inflight Wi-Fi can connect you to one of the hundreds of dating sites, catering to your specific demographic. Search “online dating” to find a site that’s eager to help you find the perfect match in time for Valentine’s Day 2018.

Regardless how you choose to use it, fast and reliable inflight Wi-Fi from Honeywell is available today … and you’re going to love it!
