Amazon has reached new heights! Literally.
The company announced Tuesday Amazon Prime members will soon have speedy access to its instant video service on select JetBlue flights using the airline's premium Wi-Fi — dubbed Fly-Fi — free of charge and with few restrictions.
JetBlue's Fly-Fi is currently available on some flights for $9 an hour. The company's website claims it can handle "bandwidth-heavy applications like streaming movies" but also says the service is in the beta testing period.
