Airfone at this point has basically been turned into a sales tool for
VZ wireless. If you have a VZW phone, Airfone costs 69 cents/min or
if you pay them a $10/mo fee, a very reasonable 10 cents/min.

For the rest of us, it's an absurd $4 connection fee and $5/min.

With any luck, they'll also price cell-on-the-plane at $5/min, so
nobody will use that, either.
