Some airlines are now selling in-flight data packages instead of providing unlimited Wi-Fi at a flat rate, reports Runway Girl Network contributing writer Paul Thompson. The problem with this model is that you can use up a data package very quickly and going over can result in additional charges.

Thompson cites the example of a Singapore Airlines passenger who used more than the 30 MB provided in the data package he selected and was surprised to receive a bill for an additional $1,174 to cover the overage. The lesson? Read the fine print.
