Flightaware shows us over Albany heading toward Syracuse and Buffalo. Our assigned altitude is 38,000 or about 7 miles up! We’re fighting a strong headwind–there’s 80 knots or more pushing against our nose.
Southwest is charging $5 for the WiFi access. That seems fair. Based on their magazine the pricing varies flght-to-flight as they try and figure out the sweet spot for revenue.
There are no power ports on the plane so when this battery runs down I’m done. I have done everything to push that time back. The screen is dimmer than usual. This laptop’s CPU has been throttled back. I won’t be doing any ‘heavy lifting’ so a slower processor is a fair tradeoff for longer battery life.
The battery indicator currently shows 4:12 of power. I suspect that’s a lie.
