Those 1980s-style computers at airports offering 20 minutes internet for £1 to check your email are not the coolest way to stay in touch with the cloud, are they? Nor the cheapest. But if you’ve not got the moolah to cruise into the first class lounge, you can still take advantage of the free wi-fi offered to the prawn sandwich-munching classes.
Pitch yourself as some kind of class warrior if you like, stealing from the rich to give to the poor (or the not so rich, I mean come on, you’re at an airport after all, right?). Anyway, just cosy up on a seat near the first class lounge and the chances are you can surf on their wi-fi signal. Many have unprotected networks or dig around online and you might just find a password or two in advance of your trip. You’ll be streaming Game of Thrones in no time while you wait for your delayed plane, all thanks to Horatio paying an extra £500 for his ticket so he can enjoy a free glass of pinot and a comfy seat.
