There's no stopping the spread of in-flight Wi-Fi. Now even the smaller planes within Delta's fleet will provided access to the Internet from high in the skies.

According to Jaunted, Delta Air Lines will be adding Wi-Fi connections to its Connection Carriers regional fleet beginning next year. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2011.

Delta already uses the Gogo Inflight Internet service, so expect the same pricing plans. For short-haul flights, pricing starts at $4.95 for 1.5 hours.

Don't forget that Delta planes already enabled with Wi-Fi access will be providing that service for free this holiday season, as will Virgin America and AirTran Airways.
