    In December, PCWorld posted a major story about the tech amenities available to travelers in America's airports ("20 Best U.S. Airports for Tech Travelers"). In it we focused on the airports themselves, but often airlines are responsible for driving the installation of new tech amenities in gate areas. The airlines know that electrical outlets, work desks, and zippy Wi-Fi can influence passengers' decisions to fly with Airline A or with Airline B.

    As a result, some airlines have become deeply involved in making their gate areas a more welcoming place for laptop and smartphone users. Others have focused on developing apps and mobile websites, and offering in-flight Wi-Fi service in their planes. Not surprisingly, some airlines are more progressive than others when it comes to techy stuff. Here's how the U.S. airlines stack up. (See a ranked chart of the top 10 U.S. airlines, comparing their features.)

  2. I wish more airlines would get on-board with WiFi. I've used the service on Alaska and Delta flights. It was great.

    VX is #3? Did they forget (or not hear about) that melt-down of VX' web self service functionality that was (is?) ongoing for weeks after they switched reservation systems?
