Draining the iPhone Battery at 34,000 Feet

I’m currently on an American Airlines Maddog somewhere over Utah… Colorado? New Mexico? Anyway, I am on my way back to the Metromess Furnace after two lovely cool days in and around Salt Lake.

Nothing exciting about any of that…. except that this is my first time flying on a wi-fi equipped aircraft.

Pretty cool… except that I think the 7.95 flight price is too high. $4.95 would be more palatable.

Unfortunately my adventure with an electronic boarding pass on the iPhone was not as successful. I accessed it fine for TSA. but when I got to the gate, the page kept coming up with a “system unavailable” message. Gate agent had to key me in manually.

As she said… “technology is great…. when it works.”
