    Fly Delta! Many of their US domestic flights have WiFi on board and the speed isn't too shabby all things considered!

    I read mostly, upload newspapers and news apps, e-mail updates. Anything I can upload before a trip that doesn't access wi-fi though I do use my iPhone 3GS to update if I need maps etc... Films, music. I just love my iPad xxxx

    Movies when I'm not connected, but lately I've been paying for Gogo-inflight, and if you have a multi-leg trip, you can get both (or more) segment connectivity for $12 (instead of paying for $10 for each flight).

    For those who rent movies for in flight entertainment:

    1) which provider do you rent from?
    2) how much iPad space does a movie rent require, if at all?
    3) what's a typical cost nowadays?
    4) how do you return once done?

    Occasionally I do 12 hour flight, and I need to be able to rent and return from another country, etc. Have never rented a movie online...

    1) One simple option is to rent a movie from iTunes.
    2) A typical SD movie takes up 1,5GB, an HD movie up to 3GB.
    3)The costs vary between 0.99 and 4.99.
    4)There is no return, as the file becomes unreadable after 48h of first opening it.

    I just rent from iTunes. The cost is between 1-5 dollars depending on movie and quality. The HD movies are usually 5 to rent for a 30 day rental but 24 hours once you begin movie. The size is about 3-5 GB. it deletes the movie automatically.

    I also use iTunes for downloading movie and TV show rentals.

    This is my iPad on her last transpacific flight - she gets her own business class seat next to mine. =)
