Work travel: do you wifi on a plane or not?

More and more airlines are offering free internet during flight. I admit there's always been something nice about not having internet access for 3-5 hours when I'm traveling for work.I can still be on my computer, catching up on offline work, documents, or presentations, or I can just read. Now that in-flight internet is so accessible, is there now an obligation to be online during flight? Is there an expectation to still be connected, or is it ok to be off the grid, so to speak?

Depending on where one is flying from or to, there is less wifi than the publicity might lead you to believe.I'd say that it is a personal call - that is, no one must be e accessible at all times and all hours of all days and nightnomes matter the location. We are all entitled to establish priorities, and one of those might be to go off the grid for a time to work on something that is important enough that interruption causes a problem. Or, frankly, it's OK to go dark just because you want to.

I don't know about the obligation thing. Other than your family, you are not OBLIGATED to do anything. I ask the question, when there was no internet or wi-fi, were you obligated to do anything then? As much as I love tech gadgets, internet, etc, taking a few hours to sleep or relax on a plane is QUITE ok! :-)

I agree with Art and Robert. Using the the Internet for personal enjoyment while traveling is fine, but you certainly have no OBLIGATION to be available online for business 24/7 unless it is really, really important and a rare occurrence but not routinely.Al Shultz
