According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, the carrier is allegedly considering making Wi-Fi entirely free for all passengers. The improvements are expected to roll out within the next year. The company, though, has yet to confirm the news officially. While Delta CEO, Ed Bastian, has previously voiced his interest in making Wi-Fi free on Delta flights, the airline told Gizmodo that it is currently testing the infrastructure with various offerings to select customers on select routes.

Currently, Delta offers Wi-Fi service on more than half of its planes, and the price starts at $5 for a single flight. If free Wi-Fi is implemented, Delta will join other carriers in the free connectivity mission, including JetBlue and other international airlines.Want more Thrillist?

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
